Overview

Objectives

The general objective of the project was to develop technologies that allowed the detection, location and diagnosis, in incipient states of cracks of critical elements of the bogie, such as the axles, as well as the evolution of these cracks, in order to make a prediction of the fracture of the component once the presence of a crack is detected.

Results

RESULTS
The proposed technology could be installed in both existing and new bogies. It was estimated in the first phase that the product would be better received if installed in bogies that were already in circulation since the probability of failures was greater than in new bogies newly exited from the factory. In the long term, operators would require manufacturers to incorporate the new product in the bogies as standard.
