About Me

I'm representing the Wheel-rail interface research group as a part of Department of Tribology, Brno University of Technology. The group is engaged in basic and applied research into the tribology of the wheel-rail interface and the development of technology for friction management. We provide a wide range of facilities for experimental research and development. Our activities cover:

  • Testing of friction modifiers, lubricants and traction enhancers; development of testing methodology.
  • Development of friction management techniques (wheel-flange lubrication, top-of-rail conditioning, sanding).
  • Development of airless systems for friction management (lubrication and sanding).
  • Research into curving noise and development of mitigation techniques (actively controlled lubrication and top-of-rail conditioning).  
  • Research into “wet-rail” phenomenon and low-adhesion problem.
  • Research and implementation of digital twin-based approach of friction layer in the wheel-rail interface for friction and wear prediction.
