Reliability and safety of axles, wheels and axle bearings - Reliability, availability, maintainability, safety – Implementation of EN 50126 – for Mechanical Components in Railways
The aim of the Project is to make it possible to calculate characteristic RAMS values on the basis of EN 50126 to determine the reliability and safety of railway rolling stock running gear. The project is to draw upon the results of work by the "Joint Sector Group for the ERA Task Force on wagon/axle maintenance" (JSG), findings from the EURAXLES projects and the results of the UIC SOR project. These characteristic values are necessary to safely analyse changes in the running gear and their effects.
The outcome will be to make it possible to calculate characteristic RAMS values. These characteristic values are necessary to safely analyse system changes and their effects. At its completion the Project will have provided a procedure for determining these characteristic RAMS values, demonstrating it by means of practical calculations.
