Abstract: In order to improve fatigue life of wheel steel, LF-VD secondary-refining process is done with Al-deoxidation and slag of high basicity, high Al2O3 content and low oxidizing property. Inclusion content would be influenced by [Al]s, [Mg], [Ca] in molten steel. It is found that Al2O3 inclusions, which are the products of Al-deoxidation, would react with [Mg], [Ca] in molten steel to transform into CaO-MgO-Al2O3 complex inclusions, which is the key for the enhancement of fatigue performance for wheel steel.

Abstract: In order to improve fatigue life of wheel steel, secondary-refining process is done with Al-deoxidation and slag of high basicity, high Al2O3 content and low oxidizing property. [M, [C content in molten steel would be influenced by slag composition. It is found that high basicity, high Al2O3 content and low oxidizing property is positive factor for proper [M, [C content in molten steel which is the key of inclusion transformation from Al2O3 to CaO-MgO-Al2O3 complex inclusion, contributing to the enhancement of fatigue performance for wheel steel.

Abstract: In order to improve fatigue life of wheel steel, secondary-refining process was done with Al-deoxidation and slag of high basicity, high Al2O3 content and low oxidizing property. By morphology observation and composition analysis with FESEM, it is found that during LF-VD process, by slag-steel-inclusion interaction, Al2O3 inclusions could transform to MgO-Al2O3 spinel, and later on to CaO-MgO-Al2O3 inclusions, which are inclined to be eliminated by floatation, lowering T[O] content to 0.0007%, enhancing fatigue life of wheel steel. By In-Situ observation with CONFOCAL laser scanning microscope, it is found that MnS precipitates during solidification process, which would core oxide inclusion to form MnS-oxide complex inclusion, contributing to fatigue life improvement of wheel steel. By INSTRON fatigue testing machine, it is found that by successful inclusion control, tested samples achieve ultra-high cycle of 108 above, realizing experimental purpose of improving fatigue life of wheel steel, boosting domestic production process of CRH high speed wheel steel.

Abstract: In order to improve fatigue life of wheel steel, secondary-refining process is done with Al-deoxidation and slag of high basicity, high Al2O3 content and low oxidizing property. By slag-steel-inclusion interaction, harmful inclusions could be controlled well to be eliminated by floation, lowering T[O] content to 0.0007% in round billets, enhancing fatigue life of wheel steel. It is found that (Al2O3) in slag is positive factor for decrease of T[O], while (CaO)/(Al2O3), (SiO2) in slag and [Al]s in molten steel is negative factor for it. As a result, by INSTRON fatigue testing machine, tested steel samples achieve ultra-high cycle of 108 above, realizing experimental purpose of improving fatigue life of wheel steel.

Abstract: The wheel/rail contact is chracterized by high contact forces and small contact areas. Although the standard of railway wheel has sustained, the damages of railway wheel have been occurred in service running. The railway wheel damage can be divided into three types; wear, contact fatigue failure and thermal crack due to braking. In curves, especially, large sliding on the contact patch occurs at the wheel tread and flange. Due to this sliding, wear increases in the wheel/rail contact under the dry condition. To reduce wear, more durable wheel steels are required. In order to develop new materials and predict wear, It is important to understand the wear mechanism in wheel steels. In this study, we have investigated the wear characteriscs of RSW1 railway wheel steel using twin disc wear testing. Also the comparative wear behavior of RSW1 and R7 wheel steel under rolling-sliding contact was performed.

Abstract: The dynamic compressive mechanical behavior of railway wheel steel at room temperature was investigated experimentally for strain rates up to ~2300/s, by using a split Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) apparatus. Experimental results indicate that the wheel steel exhibits an obvious strain rate-dependence; both yield strength and flow stress enhance with the increase of strain rate. Based on experimental data, an empirical dynamic constitutive model was used to describe the strain rate effect of wheel steel. These research results could provide reliable and accurate material constitutive parameters for wheel-rail impact simulations, to guide the design and assessment of the safety of the wheel-rail system.

Abstract: The chip formation and morphology are definitely affected by tool geometry and cutting parameters such as cutting speed, feed rate, and depth of cutting. An experiment investigation was presented to study the influence of tool geometry on chip morphology, and to clarify the effect of different cutting parameters on chip deformation in orthogonal turning the wheel steel. The result obtained in this study showed that tool geometry affected the chip morphology significantly; cutting speed was the most contributive factor in forming saw-tooth chip.

Abstract: This study investigates the effect of rail material on their wear behavior of rail-wheel system by using MMS-2A twin-disc abrasion tester. When one type of wheel matches with different types of steel rail, the worn lose of the steel rail decreases with the increasing hardness, and the abrade wear of wheel increases. The trend showed by the SEM micrograph of the wear scar was consistent with the results of the worn lose.
