The three-dimensional elastic frictional finite element model of the wheel/rail interaction is put forward
to investigate effect of the curve radius and superelevation on the contact stress and contact force of
the rail. The interaction between left and right wheels is considered. The rail model includes 60kg/m
standard rail, sleeper, rail fastening, rubber tie plate and ballast bed. The elastic frictional contact
problem is solved with finite element software JIFEX developed by state key laboratory of structural
analysis for industrial equipment, dalian university of technology. The finite element method can avoid
half-space assumption of Hertz method and non-Hertz method and accurately simulate the real
geometry and the boundary condition of the wheel/rail. The numerical results indicate that the curve
radius and super- elevation significantly effect contact stress and contact force distributions.

Rail load measurement is an importance means to monitor the states of running trains and rail road. So
precision of the measurement directly affects the estimation of running train states. In this paper, a
deep discussion of rail load measurements was presented base on finite element analysis. And an
improved measurement was put forward which showed better in precision. By means of ANSYS, finite
element analysis of railway rail was finished, which shows strain field trend of rail and strain curves of
nodes on the neutral line of rail. With the curves we found the best positions for fixing strain transducer
according to sensitivity, linearity and measurability. We improve a new one with the positions got from
finite element analysis, which was validated to be more advanced and superiority by experiment.
