    Summary

    Railway crossings

    This ongoing research consists of several projects the firs of which was commenced in 2007.

    Elasticity of railway turnouts                       (2007 – 2010)

    Optimisation of railwway turnouts                (2010 – 2016: PhD study of C. Wan)

    • Smart grinding of crossings (2015 – 2016)

    Long term behaiviour of railway crossings     (2012 – 2017: PhD study of L. Xin)

    Wheel-rail interface                                     (2013 – 2017: PhD study of Y. Ma)

    Structural health monitoring of crossings      (2013 – 2018: PhD study of X. Liu)

    • Long term montoring of double crossover in Meppel (2015 – 2017)
    • Monitoring of new type of turnouts                          (2015-2016)
