Wheel/rail rolling contact fatigue - probe, predict, prevent
Paper in proceedings, 2012

With the aim of putting prediction and prevention of rolling contact fatigue of wheels and rails in context, the paper sets out with a description of the phenomena. This is followed by a discussion on predictive models with emphasis on influencing factors needed to be accounted for and how these can be incorporated in a predictive model. This forms the basis for a discussion on preventive measures. Finally a brief outlook of expected future trends is given.
