Tramway Track a new Approach for Measuring the TransverseProfile of Worn-Out Rails

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Monitoring the wear condition of the tramway superstructure is one of the key points to guarantee an adequate safety level of the light rail transport system. The purpose of this paper is to suggest a new non-conventional procedure for measuringthe transverse profile of rails in operation by means of image-processing technique. This methodological approach isbased on the “information” contained in high-resolution photographic images of tracks and on specific algorithms whichallow to obtain the exact geometric profile of the rails and therefore to measure the state of the rail-head extrados wear.
