Railway applications - Track - Test methods for fastening systems - Part 5: Determination of electrical resistance
|Publication Date:||1 April 2012|
|ICS Code (Construction of railways):||93.100|
This European Standard specifies a laboratory test procedure for determining the electrical resistance, in wet conditions, between the running rails provided by a fastening system fitted to a steel or concrete sleeper, bearer or element of slab track.
It is also applicable to embedded rail.
This test procedure applies to a complete fastening assembly. It is relevant to signalling currents, not to traction currents.
A reference procedure and an alternative procedure are included.
