The paper deals with the new approach to the optimization of the pearlitic rail’s head hardening process aimed at balancing the relation between strength and ductility of the head running surface. In the industrial process, efforts have been undertaken so far to maximize the hardness of the rail’s head while maintaining its pearlite structure, resulting in obtaining enhanced wear resistance and resistance...
