Abstract

Rail quality is essential to railroad safety. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance to establish the characteristics that affect rail life. The goal of the present work is to assess the expediency, necessity, and sufficiency of current quality requirements on rails. Prospective directions for research are suggested, with a view to improving the quality standards.

Keywords:

rails rail performance heat treatment rail life mechanical properties conveyed tonnage quality standards
