1 Non-destructive Testing of Rail Bob Crocker

2 Background Hither Green disaster November 1967 Section of rail at a bolted joint came away Caused by cracks growing from bolt holes Realisation that cracks too small to be detected by visual inspection could cause catastrophic failure Real NDT arrived

3 Overview Rail is an engineering structure like many others Strength and stiffness based on material properties and shape However, introduce a sharp tipped crack as a stress intensifier and all bets are off Huge holes have no effect as long as the radius is large

4 Network Rail Infrastructure Network Rail owns approximately 21,000 miles of track, therefore 42,000 miles of rail This is comprised of approximately 16,000 miles of continuously welded rail (CWR) and 5,000 miles of jointed track, so millions of welds and bolted joints This includes approximately 35,000 switch and crossing (S&C) units.

5 The Facts of Life Cracks can occur anywhere at any time miles and S&C to cover

13 NDT of Welds Specialist techniques such as GULS, and radiography. Ultrasonic Procedure U6. U6 requires two hand held probes mounted in a tandem jig. It takes around 40 minutes per weld and is notoriously unreliable and operator sensitive. THESE ARE ALL SPOT INSPECTIONS

14 NDT of Welds The task is to inspect the millions of welds in track routinely and frequently. Once they have survived the first few weeks statistically they do not fail. All routine ultrasonic rail inspection treats welds as plain line. Welds develop many defects that are similar to plain line defects and they are detected by the normal ultrasonic procedures.

15 Inside NDT Objective: find everything test it often pre-emptive crack detection defect management to replace crisis recovery How: comprehensive ultrasonic inspection

16 Who are we? The Worlds First Company to Provide the Railways with a Rail Flaw Detection Service Worlds Largest Rail Inspection Company Over 65 Years Experience in Rail Flaw Detection An Expanding Fleet of over 120 vehicles The Only Company Totally Focused to Rail Flaw Detection

17 - We ve been around awhile

43 Benefits Manual and Mobile Inspection working in harmony Reliable defect data Reliable defect database Reliable asset management information

44 Summary Specialist techniques such as GULS, Lizard and radiography for spot inspections such as S&C and Welds Frequent, comprehensive ultrasonic inspection of plain line, welds and joints using vehicles and walking sticks equipped with Roller Search Units Objective is pro-active defect management, rather than reactive crisis recovery

45 A Parting Thought!!!! The Most Important Defect is not the Smallest we can find but the Largest we miss.
