Rail Track Fatigue

This was a year-long study into the causes of fatigue cracks in railway lines. ISRU designed and validated the experimental plans and a spreadsheet model of the tool for establishing the quality of rails was created. The work was reported in the IMechE journal in 2003 and an abstract for the paper can be found at http://pif.sagepub.com/content/217/2/89.short and the document below describes a workshop it was showcased in.
