The Rail Infrastructure Group has been involved in leading EU and worldwide railway research for over ten years.
The Rail Infrastructure Group has developed computer programs Dynarat and DynaCrack which are used for simulating wear and crack initiation:
A section of track is available at our full-scale test site at Barrow Hill in the UK for instrumenting and experimenting. Additional testing facilities are available for wear, fatigue and chemical and bio-chemical analysis of low adhesion leaf films.
