Abstract [en]

Switch and crossing (S&C) dynamic loads are investigated through the use of field experimentation in the UK and analysis of the collected data. A design of experiments was set up from a previous investigation into the failure statistics, using delay data and failure understanding from the infrastructure owner. Strains, velocity and acceleration are measured on a selection of S&C, focusing on mid-speed switches due to their industrial relevance, high delay and rectification costs. The analysis of the data includes peak-to-peak values, and frequency content of the dynamic loading.
