Abstract
The irregularities of wheel tread can be detected by processing acceleration vibration signal of railway. Various kinds of noise from different sources such as wheel-rail resonance, bad weather and artificial reasons are the key factors influencing detection accuracy. A method which uses wavelet threshold de-noising is investigated to reduce noise in the detection signal, and an improved signal processing algorithm based on it has been established. The results of simulations and field experiments show that the proposed method can increase signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of the rail vibration signal effectively, and improve the detection accuracy.
