JVTC seminar

Luleå Railway Research Center welcomes you to a seminar on the 19th of May 2016, at 10:00 to 11:30 in F1031 at LTU.
Topic: Collaborative conceptual design methods in the context of a deregulated railway market
Presenter: Anna Malou Peterson, PhD Student Operation and Maintenance Engineering, LTU
Topic: Hand held apparatus for friction and wear measurements of railway tracks
Presenter: Jan Lundberg, professor Machine Elements and Operation and Maintenance Engineering, LTU

Maintenance researcher awarded best PhD thesis

Christer Stenström, Division of Operation, Maintenance and Acoustics, has been awarded EFNMS Excellence Award for the Best European PhD Thesis in Maintenance 2016, by the European Federation of National Maintenance Societies (EFNMS). The title of the thesis is “Operation and maintenance performance of rail infrastructure: Model and methods”.
The thesis deals with maintenance performance measurement and management for railway infrastructure, with emphasis on case studies on industry common challenges within maintenance engineering.

Railway Invention can save millions

A small device can make great use to all the world's railways. It is the aim when a new portable tester, which, when you fixe it directly on the rails, can measure the wear and friction with great resemblance to reality at all types of railway tracks, and thereby reduces costs of maintenance. The device is designed for Railway Research Center (JVTC), at Luleå University of Technology.

Preliminary study on effect relationship for the maintenance of railway

Maintenance of our railways is important for them to continue to be an attractive means of transport, corresponding to both passengers and freight customers' expectations for reliability. In pace with the demands of sustainable travel and transport increases, the railway's position in society and more important. At the same time, we have in recent years seen the punctuality and regularity of rail services, which has resulted in the need to calculate the benefits of preventive maintenance.

Dissertation: Dependability and Safety Evaluation of Railway Signalling Systems Based on Field Data

Luleå Railway Research Center (JVTC) invites you to:
Dissertation for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Operation and Maintenance Engineering, which with the permission of the Faculty Board at Luleå University of Technology, will be defended in public by Amparo Morant Estevan, in room F1031, on Thursday the 3rd of December 2015, at 10.00 am.

The project ePilot intends to increase the standard of Sweden's railways

In order to improve the process of rail maintenance Luleå University of Technology in collaboration with operators from the railway system developed the concept ePilot. The Swedish Transport Administration made the order and so far, the concept has been tested on the track section between Boden and Luleå. Successful results have now made them want to take the concept to a national level.
