Queensland Chapter - Railway Wagon Twist Fatigue Considerations Technical Presentation

Date: 25-Jul-2018

Event Details


RTSA Queensland Chapter technical presentation on twist fatigue considerations for railway wagons, presented by Jair Amaro (Aurizon).

Presentation Information:
In this presentation, Jair Amaro will cover the application and implications of twist to rolling stock body design via first principles and simulation using finite element analysis (FEA). He will also provide an overview of extensive in-service testing and analysis performed before highlighting observations and making suggestions for the provision of twist load design of rolling stock in future design standards.

Jair Amaro is a Charted Wagon Engineer with Aurizon. Jair has experience with in-train force analysis and consist configuration verification with the aid of strain gauge instrumentation. He has recently co-authored and presented a paper on wagon twist fatigue considerations at the IHHA and CORE conferences.
