Abstract [en]

Wheel/rail guidance is made possible by the shapes of wheel and rail profiles. For train operators to increase revenue and decrease cost for railway infrastructure owners they must monitor the conditions of the assets.The Iron Ore Line in northern Sweden has two different monitoring systems installed to monitor con- ditions of all passing vehicles. The wheel/rail force measurement are made in a curve to see the how the vehicle negotiate the curve, and the wheel profile measurements are done on tangent track not far away. The vehicles investigated are iron ore wagons from LKAB mining company with an axle load of 30 tonnes and a loaded top speed of 60 km/h.This study uses the condition from either wheel wear or wheel/rail forces as decision-making support for maintenance actions. A correlation between forces and wheel wear will make it possible to use this kind of force measurement stations at more places than just profile stations. This correlation will help to obtain maintenance limits for the operators to use on their rolling stock.
