|Publication Date:||1 September 2018|
|ICS Code (Construction of railways):||93.100|
This document is applicable to testing of rails installed in track for detecting rail surface cracks. This part of this European Standard applies to testing equipment in inspection-trains or reprofiling machines and manual systems. This document specifies the requirement for testing principles and systems in order to produce comparable results in respect to the location and the characteristic of surface cracks. This document is not aiming to give any guidelines for managing the result of eddy current rail testing. This document does not define the requirements for vehicle acceptance. This document is not concerned with production testing of rails in a production plant. This document applies only to rail profiles meeting the requirements of EN 13674-1.
