Railway applications - Track - Switches and crossings - Part 3: Requirements for wheel/rail interaction
|Publication Date:||29 August 2003|
|ICS Code (Construction of railways):||93.100|
This part of this European Standard specifies:
- characterisation of wheel and track dimensions;
- geometric design principles for wheel guidance;
- design principles for wheel load transfer;
- deciding whether movable crossings are needed.
These are illustrated by their application to turnout components:
- check rails.
but the principles apply equally to more complex layouts.
