Publication Date: 1 May 2016
Status: active
Page Count: 44
ICS Code (Construction of railways): 93.100
scope:

This European Standard applies to testing of rails installed in track for detecting internal discontinuities.

This part applies to testing equipment fitted to dedicated test vehicles or manually-propelled devices. This European Standard does not define the requirements for vehicle acceptance. This part of the standard does not apply to ultrasonic testing of rails in a production plant.

The European Standard specifies the requirements for testing principles and systems in order to produce comparable results with regard to location, type and size of discontinuities in rails.
