Fatigue strength evaluation of alumino thermit welded rail joints successfully done at CSIR-SERC

Fatigue life evaluation of number of welded rail joints from government and private agencies are carried out at CSIR-Structural Engineering Research Centre (CSIR-SERC), Chennai.Such modern fatigue strength tests by CSIR-SERC are helping Indian Railways to ensure safety of rail tracks. CSIR-SERC has been in the forefront in assisting Indian Railways for the past three decades, in assessing the quality of welded rail joints.
