Abstract

Track short wave defects cause impact forces in the wheel-rail contact which leads to fast deterioration of the track. Early detection of such defects is very important for timely prevention measures. The present paper discusses a method for detection of track short wave defects by means of axle box acceleration (ABA). A validated finite element model was employed for numerical simulations of ABA. The dynamic responses of the vehicle-track system at a thermite weld were estimated.
