about

Rail integrity is a current application of engineering fracture mechanics at a practical level. Although railroad rails have been manufactured and used for more than a century, it is only in the last ten years that the effects of their crack propagation and fracture characteristics have been considered from a rational viewpoint. The J,Jractical objectives are to develop damage tolerance <_ether20_field20_observations20_and20_experimental20_stress20_analysis20_of20_railroad20_rails20_in20_the20_umted20_states20_and20_europe.20_the20_ongoing20_search20_for20_an20_efficient20_and20_accurate20_technique20_is20_emphasized.20_a20_companion20_volume20_brings20_together20_several20_analytical20_investigations2c_20_based20_on20_advanced20_compuc2ad_20_tational20_mechanics20_methods2c_20_for20_correlation20_of20_the20_experimental20_data20_as20_well20_as20_evalc2ad_20_uation20_of20_the20_effects20_of20_residual20_stress20_on20_rail20_integrity. field="" observations="" and="" experimental="" stress="" analysis="" of="" railroad="" rails="" in="" the="" umted="" states="" europe.="" ongoing="" search="" for="" an="" efficient="" accurate="" technique="" is="" emphasized.="" a="" companion="" volume="" brings="" together="" several="" analytical="" _investigations2c_="" based="" on="" advanced="" _compuc2ad_="" tational="" mechanics="" _methods2c_="" correlation="" data="" as="" well="" _evalc2ad_="" uation="" effects="" residual="" rail="">
