Derailment Prevention StrategiesThis webcast will present strategies and technologies that can help you to reduce the frequency and severity of derailments. The topics are relevant to Class 1s, regionals, short lines, transit and commuter, and industrial rail operations.
When you attend you will discover the key components required for a world-class derailment prevention program, which include:
- A corporate focus, including statistical analysis, periodic reviews, and establishment of a multidisciplinary corporate team with a mission to prevent derailments.
- Strategic deployment of fault detection technologies such as WILD, TPD, HBD, wheel profile, wedge rise on the mechanical side. Also, on the track side technologies such as track geometry car measurements, gage restraint measurement system (GRMS), ultrasonic rail flaw detection, VERSE neutral temperature testing, rail profile and rail wear measurements, and vertical track deflection testing.
- Properly trained field investigation teams made up of all operating groups.
- Use of state of the art simulation technology to verify potential causes, such as train slack action or vehicle-track interaction issues.
- Application of derailment risk assessment tools to identify potential derailment risks and deploy appropriate mitigation strategies.
The webcast will also present several mini case studies showing the practical application of these techniques, tools, and technologies.
