Progressive Railroading's free 'Derailment Prevention Strategies' webcast on tap for today


Today at 1 p.m. (EDT), Progressive Railroading will present a free webcast that aims to highlight the practical application of various derailment prevention strategies.

Titled "Derailment Prevention Strategies," the webcast will be presented by TUV-Rail Sciences Inc. President and founder Gary Wolf, and moderated by Assistant Editor Julie Sneider.

The webcast will cover:
• the strategic deployment of fault detection technologies such as WILD, TPD, HBD, wheel profile and wedge rise on the mechanical side;
• the use of track-side technologies such as track geometry car measurements, gage restraint measurement systems, ultrasonic rail flaw detection, VERSE neutral temperature testing, rail profile and rail wear measurements, and vertical track deflection testing;
• how state-of-the-art simulation technology can verify potential causes, such as train slack action or vehicle-track interaction issues; and
• the application of derailment risk assessment tools to identify potential derailment risks and deploy appropriate mitigation strategies.

The event is sponsored by the Rail Safety 2013 International Seminar and Expo, R.J. Corman Derailment Services and TUV-Rail Sciences Inc.
