Bogie Condition Monitoring and Hunting Detection for Rail Applications

Expanding the Scope of Bogie Performance Detectors

Wayside Inspection Devices


This paper discusses how bogie performance detectors (BPD) information can be used to identify wheelsets and bogies that will experience degenerative / accelerated wheel wear early in the process, to break the cycle of repeated premature wheelset replacement, as well as repeated replacements of non-causal components. Advances in the identification of derailment-level risks will also be discussed.

This paper also discusses how recent advances of BPD data analysis is improving the understanding of bogie geometry and bogie hunting, and how this is being used to target specific wheel wear and specific failed bogie components, and remedy specific wear regimes on the rail infrastructure.
