The purpose of this paper is to investigate the effect of variable amplitude service loading conditions and wear phenomenon on reliability analysis for rail steel. For this purpose, the rail with the exact geometry of the profile in the railway systems and the boundary element method has been used. Also, the geometry correction functions of the five cracks, as a function of a crack size are determined by using nonlinear regression analysis estimating the statistical descriptors of the five geometry correction functions. Fatigue reliability is evaluated for each failure mode due to multiple site fatigue cracks propagation in rail steel. © 2021 Elsevier Ltd

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the effect of variable amplitude service loading conditions and wear phenomenon on reliability analysis for rail steel. For this purpose, the rail with the exact geometry of the profile in the railway systems and the boundary element method has been used. Also, the geometry correction functions of the five cracks, as a function of a crack size are determined by using nonlinear regression analysis estimating the statistical descriptors of the five geometry correction functions. Fatigue reliability is evaluated for each failure mode due to multiple site fatigue cracks propagation in rail steel. © 2021 Elsevier Ltd
