Maximising the use of condition monitoring systems Railways have an increasing number of condition monitoring systems available to them, capturing a wide variety of track and rolling stock parameters. By understanding how these systems work, and combining datasets to monitor key parameters, railway owners and operators can maximise the value of their assets. Clinton Smalley, Team Leader – Rolling Stock at Monash University’s Institute of Railway Technology, explores further.
TTCI delivers important wheelset research Wheelsets are perhaps the most critical rolling stock component for ensuring safety, efficiency, and reliability in railway operations. Accordingly, the Association of American Railroads (AAR) directs a portion of its annual research programme toward improvements in the design, materials, and inspection methods of wheelset components – primarily wheels and bearings. This work is conducted by the Transportation Technology Center, Inc. (TTCI), a wholly-owned subsidiary of AAR and a global leader in railway research, simulation, and full-scale testing. In this article, TTCI colleagues Scott Cummings, Anish Poudel, Dustin Clasby, and Kerry Jones describe some of the wheelset-related work conducted by the centre.
