Detecting rail breaks is critical for safe railroad operations. Break detection outside of signaled territory often requires manual inspection that is prone to error. Dr. Andrew Kish will explain longitudinal stress in rail, the neutral temperature issues resulting from rail break/defect removal events, the problems introduced by cold weather repairs, and new approaches to readjust neutral temperature to desired target values. He will also overview how a Salient Rail Stress Measurement™ (RSM™) system can detect rail breaks or changes in track conditions that would require inspection. Register to View Recorded Webinar >
