The lecture presents the fundamental science and modelling techniques which are used in the study of wheel-rail damage prediction and how these are currently being used to develop advanced rail maintenance, renewal and planning software tools for the new Crossrail route. The lecture will explore contributory factors to rail degradation and how these can be planned for and mitigated against to help provide and maintain a safe, efficient and cost effective railway across the heart of London.

The lecture content included the following key elements:

•An understanding of the mechanical interactions between wheel and rail.

•Knowledge of the latest developments and applications of rail damage, remaining life prediction, and maintenance planning tools.

•An improved understanding of the economic implications and opportunities for rail businesses in the effective management of the of wheel-rail interface.
