Estudio de la defectología en ruedas ferroviarias | Universidad Carlos III de Madrid

Ricardo Escudero Viñas's insight:

No existe material que esté libre de defectos, incluso recién fabricados por los mejores métodos disponibles, contienen inclusiones, precipitados, poros o bordes de grano. Defectos a partir de los cuales se desarrollan fisuras, que dependiendo del nivel de tensiones se propagan hasta poder llegar a fracturar el componente, o se detienen en la primera barrera microestructural, bordes de grano o inclusiones.

 

 Un lugar crítico en una pieza es su superficie, ya que en algún lugar de ella se encuentran las tensiones máximas (probablemente junto a algún concentrador de tensiones). En estas zonas se pueden desarrollar microdefectos superficiales debido a la deformación plástica alternada, por las picaduras existentes por la oxidación o por un mal mecanizado.

 

En la producción de ruedas ferroviarias se deben tener en cuenta el material de las ruedas, siendo muy importante la calidad del acero utilizado para evitar que las fisuras empiecen a crecer a partir de defectos existentes en dicho material, las propiedades mecánicas como resistencia y tenacidad de fractura, y los métodos de ensayo acorde a los criterios de la mecánica de fractura para ruedas de ferrocarril.

Argentina | CSR's deals spark dispute with domestic rivals

Argentina | CSR's deals spark dispute with domestic rivals | Tecnología Ferroviaria | Ricardo Escudero Viñas | Scoop.it
Ricardo Escudero Viñas's insight:

 

Chinese train manufacturer CSR has sparked a dispute between fellow state-owned companies after winning two contracts in Argentina. The clash reflects the impact of the changing domestic environment on the industry, Guangzhou's 21st Century Business Herald reports.

 

CSR made an announcement on May 27 regarding deals it recently signed, including a 2.26 billion yuan (US$368.5 million) contract to supply trains to Argentina, which was signed on May 23.

 

The deal was another victory for CSR, which was already criticized by other Chinese train manufacturers for using questionable practices to win a major contract in Argentina at the end of last year, the newspaper said.

Citing a report by the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Machinery and Electronic Products, the newspaper said that the recent dispute over contracts originated from a train accident and subsequent political scandals in the South American country.

 

Argentina decided to upgrade its railway network and inter-city train system after an accident killed 51 people in the capital of Buenos Aires on Feb. 22, 2012. The accident was considered the country's worst during the last 82 years.

 

The Argentine government further announced a review on ongoing negotiations related to supply contracts for the upgrade, because several scandals involving graft allegations against transportation officials had surfaced.

 

One of the contracts affected, the newspaper said, was worth US$514 million and was later awarded to CSR, which approached the Argentine government through its Qingdao-based subsidiary at the end of last year. CSR's price quote was much lower than those of the rivals, who entered the bid before the review.

 

CSR proposed an offer price of US$1.27 million per car, while prices offered by companies including France's Alstom and China CNR stood at above US$2 million per car.

 

CSR's low prices also led Argentina to halt negotiations with all other Chinese train manufacturers, as the country become suspicious about the pricing of other Chinese companies.

 

Such results, along with the fact that CSR did not notified its plan to bid to the chamber as required, led to a complaint filed to the industry body by competing firms. The chamber's expert board ruled at the end of March that CSR should voluntarily withdraw from the Argentine market for a year.

CSR apparently does not intend to follow the decision, as it proposed a price that was even lower — US$1.05 million per car — to win the May 23 contract.

 

The newspaper also pointed out that CSR had broken the rules established by China's now defunct Ministry of Railways, by moving into the fast-growing Argentine market, which was assigned to China's CNR.

The intense competition in the overseas market, the newspaper said, is likely caused by declining domestic sales of Chinese state-owned train makers.

 

As China has stopped ordering new trains since 2009, an analyst said it was expected that CSR and China CNR would have no domestic orders after they completed the delivery of trains under existing contracts in March and June, respectively.

Ricardo Escudero Viñas's insight:


www.railwaybrazil.com | As published in http://www.bnamericas.com first, a group comprised of Estação da Luz Participações (EDLP) and BTG Pactual Gestora de Recursos submitted the original expression of interest last year.

 

This was followed by a call in January seeking other expressions of interest, which attracted another 12 companies, online magazine Revista Ferroviaria reported. The companies are Empresa Global de Projetos, Construtora Andrade Gutierrez, Planos Engenharia, Socicam Administração, Projetos e Representações, Construcap-CCPS Engenharia e Comércio, CR Almeida Engenharia de Obras, KPMG Structured Finance, Mitsui & Co Brasil, Construtora Ferreira Guedes, Prointec, Samsung C&T do Brasil Construtora, and Contern Construções e Comércio.

 

Being administered through the state's transport secretary and its PPP management council, the project involves preparing studies for a 35-year concession, which will involve building railways, implementing control systems, purchasing rolling stock and operating and maintaining the system. Set to last six months, the studies involve preparing engineering designs and a remuneration model for the concession, which includes carrying out evaluations for passenger demand and financial viability, as well as those addressing operations and legal aspects.

Chile | Government unveils national transport strategy

Chile | Government unveils national transport strategy | Tecnología Ferroviaria | Ricardo Escudero Viñas | Scoop.it

www.railwaybrazil.com |

"This country is changing. It's renovating its motor fleet for a more powerful one. As a ministry, we have to respond to this context, retaking a central role in planning, a task that we have delayed for years. In order to recuperate and strengthen that role, we're launching the biggest transformation process since the creation of MTT (Ministry of Transportation), back in 1974," MTT minister Pedro Pablo Errázuriz said.

 

The national transport policy aims to lead the transport sector to long term objectives, priorities and instruments, including changes to the roads, ports and railroad sectors, the implementation of new investment plans and guidelines to improve the quality of service of public transport, among other things.

 

Some specific projects included in the national transport strategy include the Santiago 2025 public transport master plan, and efforts to choose the best area and type of large-scale port to construct in the country's central regions.

Both initiatives are expected to be unveiled at end-2013, when part II of the national strategy will be published, the statement reads.

Brazil | EPL pushes back bid submissions for Rio-São Paulo bullet train project supervision

Brazil | EPL pushes back bid submissions for Rio-São Paulo bullet train project supervision | Tecnología Ferroviaria | Ricardo Escudero Viñas | Scoop.it
Ricardo Escudero Viñas's insight:


The deadline to submit bids for a tender to supervise the contractors developing the executive project for Brazil's 35.6bn-real (US$18bn) Rio-São Paulo-Campinas bullet train project has been pushed back to May 14.

Originally set for April 23, the date had been changed to May 2 and now to May 14. Postponements were necessary to change the criteria for judging technical proposals in order to seek greater balance and efficiency for those qualifying, according to a statement from national logistics and planning group, EPL, who has launched the tender.


Due to its complexity, the project is being developed in segments by various contractors. Besides the railway, preparations must be made to implement various tunnels, bridges, train stations, train yards, and parking facilities.

Once a supervising contractor is hired, EPL estimates that executive project developers will be hired within six months and development should take about 12 months.


Although there is no limit on the amount of participants in concessions, subcontractors are not allowed. A tender budget has not been stipulated as bidding is being conducted by way of the federal government's differentiated contracting system RDC.

Argentina | President Cristina Fernández takes over the Belgrano Cargas line creating a new state owned rail cargo company

Argentina | President Cristina Fernández takes over the Belgrano Cargas line creating a new state owned rail cargo company | Tecnología Ferroviaria | Ricardo Escudero Viñas | Scoop.it


www.railwaybrazil.com | Argentina's government has taken over the management of the run down Belgrano Cargas freight rail line by ousting concessionaire Soesa. "An important investment in new train cars" comes next, President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner said while announcing a government resolution that makes the takeover official. "If we don't integrate production with logistics, we are going to lose competitiveness."

 

The move puts an end to weeks of uncertainty over the future of Belgrano Cargas.Once the backbone of the country's freight rail transport - with a network of over 10,000km throughout the country's fertile northeastern provinces and some 4Mt/y of goods handled - the Belgrano Cargas has been steadily deteriorating over the last two decades, to the point that it transported less than 369,000t in the first six months of 2012. Today, trucks get the lion's share in the local freight transport market, making the country in one of the region's most expensive in terms of logistics costs.
