Abstract

 

This proposal presents two innovative non-contact track gage measurement techniques, microwave and ultrasound.  Both methods will be investigated and tested under harsh experimental setup conditions simulating outdoor train track.  Based on the initial test results, the more promising of the proposed two techniques will be further developed into a system with optimized measurement speed and accuracy/precision.  After feasibility testing, a final report will be submitted which summarizes the results and builds the foundation for Phase II application.
