Workshop on Nondestructive Testing in Railway Application


Structural integrity in railway engineering has been an essential subject ever since. With higher loading and lighter weight design performance requirements are continuously increased. This requires also enhanced quality control or performance control in general which all is associated with nondestructive testing (NDT). NDT today has become a mandatory tool in a variety of areas in railway engineering would those be axles, wheels or rails. However even other parts in railway engineering are considered such as the catenary, undercarriages or any components of the traction part such as gears. NDT in railway engineering is not limited to the rolling stock only. Even with railway infrastructure NDT becomes relevant such as bridges, tunnels, station buildings, dams or any other type of infrastructure.


This workshop is intended to cover but may not be limited to the following subjects:

• Ultrasonic inspection including phased array and guided waves

• Eddy current inspection

• Magnetics

• Thermography

• Other NDT techniques with railway engineering relevance

• Stress state analysis

• Wheel inspection

• Hollow axle inspection

• Rail inspection

• Infrastructure inspection (bridges, tunnels, buildings, etc.)
