Abstract

This paper gives the results of the first phase of research in which standard controlled-cooled (SCC) and high silicon (HiSi) rails were welded using the processes and materials of two thermite-welding suppliers. Specimens removed from welds are characterized by low tensile ductility and low impact toughness due to microporosity and inclusions.
