"Aim of this research is to examine the impact fatigue failure of the railhead of the IRJ [insulated rail joints] and determine actions that can be taken to prolong IRJ life in the track. Mechanical fatigue and plastic deformation (metal flow) of the railhead in the vicinity of the IRJs are the main aspects considered in the research"--p. 3.
