Railway applications - Track - Switches and crossings - Part 3: Requirements for wheel/rail interaction

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 29 August 2003
Status: active
Page Count: 24
ICS Code (Construction of railways): 93.100
scope:

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:

- switches;

- crossings;

- check rails.

but the principles apply equally to more complex layouts.
