Wheel-Rail Interface Award

The RTSA had administered the annual Wheel-Rail Interface Award on behalf of the originators and sponsors, being; the Organising Committee of the 7th International Conference on Contact Mechanics and Wear of Wheel/Rail Systems (CM2006). The award was offered to the author of an outstanding final year undergraduate thesis or a post graduate thesis that was related to the contact conditions between wheel and rail and the consequences of these conditions in terms of material behaviour and damage modes.

In 2013 it was decided to discontinue the Award.
