The purpose of the rail grinding

- Jul 31, 2017 -

1. to reduce wheel/rail contact stress and abrasion by correcting rail cross-section shape and improving wheel/rail contact relationship;

2. correct/control rail wave mill and low joint. These defects will increase the wheel-rail noise, speed up the deterioration rate of vehicle parts and rail components, and even cause the train speed limit;

3. correction/control of rolling contact fatigue defects. These defects can increase the risk of rail damage and even reduce the effect of ultrasonic rail flaw detection.

4. correction/control of other rail defects (such as wheel rolling, crushing, rail head vertical and longitudinal cracks);

5. Reduce the adverse effects of wheel and bogie movement, which will aggravate the deterioration of rail wear and defects;

6. reduce noise and vibration, reduce the vertical irregularity of common joints and welded joints, control rail wave mill;

7. to mitigate the adverse effects of the large axle heavy wheel, improve the wheel/rail contact conditions;

8. reduce lateral instability of vehicles (hunting movement).
