Now celebrating its 25th year, the Wheel Rail Interaction (WRI) Conference is multi-disciplinary, featuring three individual events—the Rail Transit Seminar, the Principles Course and the Heavy Haul Seminar—will take place in June in New Orleans.
The Rail Transit Seminar is devoted to examining wheel/rail and vehicle/track interaction on light rail and subway operations. This cross-disciplinary seminar will include presentations from experts in vehicle/track dynamics, noise and vibration, wheel/rail profile design and maintenance, and friction management.
The Principles Course, designed for both rail transit and heavy haul seminar attendees, is an intensive, full-day course providing in-depth examination of the primary aspects of wheel/rail and vehicle/track interaction.
The Heavy Haul Seminar is devoted to examining wheel/rail and vehicle/track interaction on heavy haul freight and shared-track passenger systems. The latest information on new and existing technology, and the ways in which it is being used to improve wheel/rail interaction on freight and passenger railways, will be presented by some of the best minds in railroading.
