How to reduce wheelset failures

forOperators

Wheelsets are the top rolling stock maintenance item in North America and elsewhere. High impact loads, due to tread damage from shelling and spalling, account for more wheelset removals than any other cause. Each year, a very small but important minority of wheelsets fail in a way that causes a train accident.

Sentient Science is applying its knowledge of crack initiation in rotating metal components to the rail wheel interface. We expect to predict early crack initiation in both the rail and wheel quicker than can be done with diagnostics just as we do in the energy, aerospace, transportation and industrial markets.
