The course is intended to provide the delegate with a clear understanding of the management of sites that have a risk of track buckles i.e. CWR sites with a low or unknown Stress Free Temperature (SFT). Suitable for CRT Co-ordinators, Senior Technicians as well as Supervisors, Maintenance Managers, Renewals Engineers, Project Managers and Site Supervisors.
Learning Objectives


At the end of the course the delegates will:


  • Have an appreciation of temperature induced forces in the rail in CWR.

  • Have a clear understanding of the importance of knowing the Stress Free Temperature (SFT)

  • Be aware of the Network Rail standards and requirements to manage high risk sites

  • Be able to set up procedures to record SFT by mileage, line and rail and thus identify risk sites

  • Be able to set up a geographical rail temperature monitoring procedure with reporting to identify when criticality has been reached

  • Be able to calculate the three CRT values that will provide “action triggers” for an “at risk” site

  • Know when to deploy resources to monitor individual sites

  • Be aware of the need to reduce speed or block the line and have the necessary equipment available

  • Be able to plan the necessary stressing of the at risk sites in the given priority
