Diagnostics of the railway track - Possibility of development through the measurement of accelerations and contact forces

Summary - The safety of rail transport is affected by the condition and integrity of the infrastructure on which the rolling stock circulates.
The article aims at making a bibliographic analysis of measurement and processing techniques showing how the integration between accelerometric measurements and contact forces can lead to an improvement in the identification and prediction of the onset of permanent way defects.
The purpose of the study is to provide useful elements and tools to approach the issue of diagnostics and maintenance of the railway infrastructure.
