De kraanrail en haar ondersteuning.
Report TT.1260, Transport Engineering and Logistics.
In this report the wheel/rail contact problem will be discussed. The problem is
studied viewed in general as the contact between two bodies, and specifically
as wheel and rail contact. The geometry of the contact surface is reviewed and
the factors influencing the shape of the contact surface.
The stresses in the top of the rail are discused, as other like the bending
stress in the rest of the rail. Railtypes are discussed; the allowable stresses
are discussed too.
Finally the elastically supported rail is discussed, and what the influence of
the elastic support is on the railstresses. The differences between elastic and
nonelastic support are reviewed, and how the elastically supported rail should
be fastened to the foundation.
