Abstract [en]

The aim of this chapter is to introduce some of the basics of wheel-rail tribology before the topics are dealt with in greater detail in the subsequent chapters. Wear, contact mechanics, fatigue and adhesion are covered. Great emphasis is placed on the need to consider these subjects together to optimise the management of the wheel-rail contact as they all interact with each other. Frequent references are made to chapters where further information on the issues being discussed can be found.
