Abstract [en]

Trains operate within the limitations imposed by the friction between the railway wheel and rail surfaces. Inadequate friction causes poor adhesion during braking, which is a safety issue as it leads to extended stopping distances. Inadequate friction is also a performance issue as it affects traction and thus limits the tangential force that can be developed in curving. Delays occur if a train passes over areas of poor adhesion while in service. In this chapter are models and methods to analyse and control the adhesion between railway wheel and rail discussed. Furthermore, recent research results are also presented and discussed.
