Abstract [en]

Rail breaks are safety critical failures within railway that may result in derailment, but also delays and cancelled trains. Maintenance is important to both manage the causes of rail breaks and to reduce their unwanted consequences. The purpose of this study is to explore the relationship between maintenance practice, rail breaks and their consequences, to achieve an increased understanding of the rail break phenomenon and promote continuous improvement. To fulfil the purpose, an explorative case study at Trafikverket (Swedish transport administration) was performed. The empirical data was collected from databases that contains information about preventive and corrective maintenance, as well as traffic and traffic disturbances related to rail breaks. The analysis was founded on theories from the three fields of time series analysis, reliability analysis of repairable systems, and multivariate data analysis. The findings of the study support an increased understanding of the process of rail break development and occurrence, but also related maintenance efforts.

Note

Godkänd; 2016; Bibliografisk uppgift: Containing selected papers from the ICRESH-ARMS 2015 conference in Lulea, Sweden, collected by editors with years of experiences in Reliability and maintenance modeling, risk assessment, and asset management, this work maximizes reader insights into the current trends in Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety (RAMS) and Risk Management. Featuring a comprehensive analysis of the significance of the role of RAMS and Risk Management in the decision making process during the various phases of design, operation, maintenance, asset management and productivity in Industrial domains, these proceedings discuss key issues and challenges in the operation, maintenance and risk management of complex engineering systems and will serve as a valuable resource for those in the field. ; 20151208 (bjarne)
