Paper Abstract

The detection of rail surface defects is of great significance for railway safety. To detect the rail surface defect, the laserinduced ultrasonic rail propagation model is established by the finite element method. The intrinsic relationship between the defect depth, of the defect on rail surface and the acoustic surface wave is investigated by discussing the variation of the reflected wave and the transmitted wave both in the time and frequency domain, respectively. Quantitative evaluation of defect depth is given based on the energy of the reflected and transmitted wave, which providing a promising theoretical way for the estimation of the rail surface defect feature.
