The ARCS Group has identified a simple and elegant solution to reducing potential buckling in railways. Variations in ambient temperatures during hot and cold weather can cause rail buckles and breaks in the rai impacting the safe running of trains. It is both costly to the asset owner and operator and dangerous to rail passengers and users. Traditional methods and controls apply system wide speed restrictions based on BOM current temperature predictions often this does not accurately reflect the true conditions of the rail.
