Railway optimal fequency

Hello dear friends,

I'm a undergraduate student of Instituto Superior Tecnico at Lisbon, Portugal. Currently I'm doing some research on railway ultrasonic properties. I would like to know if someone could help me whrere to find some articles/books or literature in general about railway acoustic trasmission, best transducers, atenuation properties of rails, optimal transmision frequency and / or mathematical expressions for this themes. Also I would like to know if there is any kind of software that can simulate acoustic transmissions on materials.

Thank you very much for your attention,

Rui Maia

Re: Railway optimal fequency
Hello Rui,

I'm not aware of any software that can accurately model acoustic emissions in materials under stress. However, for simulating wavefields in solids I refer you to the program Wave2000 Pro from Cyber Logic in NYC. Point your browser to www.cyberlogic.org.

Re: Railway optimal fequency
There's a lengthy and detailed section on railway applications of ultrasonic NDT in the "Nondestructive Testing Handbook", volume 7 (Ultrasonic Testing), published by the American Society of Nondestructive Testing. If you can't find it in a technical library, the book can pe purchased from ASNT at .
