Title (EN) DEVICE FOR JOINING RAILS
(FR) DISPOSITIF POUR LA JONCTION DE RAILS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention is an improved device for joining together railway rails. The rails have a head portion, a web portion and a toe portion. The joining device includes first and second elongated metal joint bars for holding the abutting ends of the rails together. The joint bars span the ends of the rails and hold the rails together by mounting to the rails. The joint bars are mounted to each rail on opposite sides of the web portions of each rail. The joint bars are configured to mount to the web portions of the rail between the head and toe portion of each rail. The joining device further includes first and second stiffener plates mounted to the first and second joint bars, respectively, such that the joint bars and the web portion of the rails are sandwiched between the stiffener plates. The stiffener plates each having a top portion, a bottom portion and opposite lower ends. The stiffener plates span the abutting ends of the rail. The bottom portion of the stiffener plates are dimensioned and configured to extend below the toe portion of the rails and the opposite lower ends of the stiffener plates are notched to accommodate the ties.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif amélioré pour la jonction de rails de chemin de fer, lesquels ont une tête, une bande et une queue. Le dispositif comprend des première et seconde barres de jonction métalliques allongées permettant de tenir les extrémités des rails bout à bout. Les barres s'étendent sur la longueur des extrémités de rail et tiennent les rails en étant montées sur eux, sur les côtés opposés de la bande de chaque rail, entre la tête et la queue. Le dispositif comprend aussi des première et seconde plaques de rigidité montées respectivement sur les première et seconde barres, de sorte que les barres et la bande des rails soient en sandwich entre les plaques. Les plaques ont chacune un haut, un bas et des extrémités inférieures opposées, et elles s'étendent le long des extrémités de rail bout à bout. Le bas des plaques s'étend sous la queue des rails, et les extrémités inférieures opposées des plaques ont des encoches pour les fixations.
