Abstract

Rail wheel contact at switches and crossings(S&Cs) induces impact stresses along with normal and shear contact stresses, resulting in plastic deformation and eventually crack formation. A damaged and deformed wing rail of a manganese steel crossing is characterized. This includes a study of the microstructure, hardness and 3D crack network. The surface of the rail receives the maximum deformation resulting in a hardened top layer. The deformation is manifested in a high density of twins in the microstructure. A complex crack network is revealed in high resolution by X-ray tomography.
