Rolling contact fatigue in rail - insulated rail joints (IRJ)
Dhanasekar, Manicka & Ding, Kan (2013) Rolling contact fatigue in rail - insulated rail joints (IRJ). In Wang, Q. Jane & Chung, Yip-Wah (Eds.) Encyclopedia of Tribology. Springer, pp. 2910-2915.
The insulated rail joint (IRJ) is an essential component in a track circuit that controls the signaling system. Failure of IRJs leads to improper functioning of the signals,with potential for catastrophic results. Therefore, IRJs are regarded as safety-critical sections of rail network; hence, all of their components must be maintained in pristine design condition.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
