This webcast will provide you with a thorough overview of thermal forces and CWR adjusting, and provide sound methods to identify track areas with the potential for sun kinks. The presentation includes an overview of what to look for — before a track buckle occurs — through a series of examples and calculations presented in such a way that is easily understood.
You will learn the importance of doing your calculations correctly and the consequences of doing them incorrectly. Presenter John Zuspan's goal is to ensure you grasp the importance of doing it right the first time.
You will learn how to apply his derailment-preventing strategies while understanding these significant topics:
Review of the track structure
Thermal forces and the calculations
Internal forces and how to calculate them
Understanding and assigning risk
Very quick procedure for proper thermal adjusting
Maintaining neutral temperature
