Description

  • TTCI maintains several rolling load test machines to simulate the effects of rolling loads of wheels on the rail. These computer controlled devices are capable of producing wheel surface traction allowing evaluation of wear and fatigue leading to plastic deformation. This provides better understanding of how rail defects occur over time with various contact stresses.
