Gauge Corner Lubrication and TOR Friction Management

Research Overview:

All Standards, including Australian Standards, are living documents that evolve and improve over time with the advent of new knowledge. The Australian Standard ‘Rail Gauge Corner Lubrication Management – for Friction Levels and Measurement’ (AS7614:2017) gives guidance based on practitioner experience. It was felt that improvements could be made based on the more precise measurements of friction that are now possible.
