Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. RAILROAD RAILS AND CAR WHEELS SUFFER MECHANICAL WEAR THROUGH USE, AND THIS WEAR IS A MAJOR MAINTENANCE EXPENSE ITEM FOR MOST RAILROADS.

    SBC: Tribo Materials Dev. Corp.            Topic: N/A

    RAILROAD RAILS AND CAR WHEELS SUFFER MECHANICAL WEAR THROUGH USE, AND THIS WEAR IS A MAJOR MAINTENANCE EXPENSE ITEM FOR MOST RAILROADS. IT HAS BEEN SHOWN THAT SUBSTANTIAL REDUCTION IN WEAR CAN BE ACHIEVED THROUGH LUBRICATION, ALTHOUGH THE LUBRICATORS THEMSELVES ARE A MAINTENANCE PROBLEM. IT IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP AN ANTI-WEAR COATING WHICH CAN BE APPLIED PERIODICALLY TO RAILS TO REDUCE WEAR AND TO ...
