    Description

    The formation and evolution of corrugation on wheel and rail is a big problem in railway traffic. The phenomenon ramains yet to be fully understood, especially the physics of the contact between wheel and rail has not been investigated thoroughly. The most frequent used contact models are only valid for stationary cases and are thus not valid for a contact situation with corrugation involved.
    The aim of the Ph.d.-works is to develop analytical and numerical tools which can be used in the simulations of railway dynamics. In cooperation with DSB is a project on the measuring of noise emission from wheels and rail been established, a project which shall be used for comparison between the theoretical work and real life dynamics.
