Paper Title:
Analysis of the Generation Cause of Scale Shelling Defects on Running Surface of 60kg/m U71Mn Rail
  Abstract

There were different degree scale shelling defects on running surface of 60kg/m U71Mn rail after used on the curve for a period of time, the characteristics and the generating reasons of the defects were analyzed, and the improvement measures were presented. There test results indicated that the scale shelling defects found on rail running surface were a sort of typical rolling contact fatigue damage, which caused mainly by the excessive contact stress, as a result of the wheel long-term contact with rail on the gauge corner of the rail on curve. It is effective to prevent and reduce rolling contact fatigue damage by following measures, such as improving the wheel/rail shape matching, and guaranteeing the wheel/rail interface locating on the rail tread center position, and strengthening the railway maintenance, and reasonable preventive grinding and corrective grinding for rails, and strict executing the system that rail grading use, the heat-treated rails should be used on small curve radius and heavy-load railway.
