EN 14811:2019 (E) 6 Introduction This Introduction provides an explanation of the concept and reasoning for preparing this document. Its description ensures that, during any future revisions, restrictions will be removed if technical progress has been made or will be kept if this is not the case in order that safety is maintained if new manufacturers, products and technologies appear. The most commonly used delivery conditions in Europe for the supply of grooved rails and associated construction rail profiles have been reviewed during the preparation of this document. Modern rail production technology and the requirements of commuter railways within the European Union have demanded that the technical requirements for the products specified in this standard be reconsidered. Whenever possible, this document is performance-based. It recognizes the European quality management standard EN ISO 9001 and requires manufacturers to offer the latest proven technology consistently to satisfy the demanding quality of the required product. The steels are classified according to hardness and not to tensile strength. The acceptance tests were developed in order to monitor the properties of the grooved rail steels and grooved rails and associated construction rail profiles that are of importance for the production of grooved rails and associated construction rail profiles and which comply with the demands of commuter railways. The steel grades covered by this document reflect trends in commuter railway usage and heat-treated rails as well as associated construction rail profiles. This document contains profiles for grooved rails and associated construction rail profiles for grooved rail facilities having a linear mass of 42 kg/m and above. To ensure the supply of high quality rails, some restrictions on production processes have been imposed. This standard is applicable to all procurements covered by the European Procurement Directive (Directive 2014/24/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 February 2014). Additionally, CEN has requested a performance-based standard taking into account safety requirements and the application of the most recent technologies. With respect to the Directive, it is acknowledged that there are (and with respect to safety requirements also shall be) options to deviate from the standard upon agreement between purchaser and manufacturer. This document reflects the change in philosophy compared with the traditional content of delivery conditions for grooved rails and associated construction rail profiles. The most frequently used delivery conditions in Europe for the supply of grooved rails and construction rail profiles have been reviewed. All the aspects that are important for the purchasers and manufacturers have been analysed to ensure that the overall contents are particularly appropriate and relevant for the document. For example, the classification of the steel grades of grooved rails and associated construction rail profiles and also other aspects of the document has been based on hardness, not on tensile testing. Whilst the two are directly related, hardness testing is very quick and inexpensive to carry out and provides more relevant guidance to the user, particularly where properties vary in different parts of the profile. One new aspect of the document is the integration of a clause on quality management and testing in order to ensure the product integrity. In order to ensure that the quality management systems are consistent for all manufacturers and that all purchasers can be sure about the consistency of the product quality of these safety-related components, this document recommends that the manufacturer operates a quality management system at least equivalent to the requirements of a quality management standard such as EN ISO 9001. This makes it possible to dispense with detailed requirements on tests and comprehensive testing. SIST EN 14811:2019

EN 14811:2019 (E) 7 Ideally, manufacturing methods should not be referred to in product standards. However, some rail properties are either not exactly known or cannot be determined with an adequately high statistical reliability. In these cases, as the final possibility, reference is made to manufacturing methods that correspond to best practice. Methods and requirements are specified that offer the maximum probability that the necessary product is obtained in the track. Future technological solutions can increase the list of these requirements but will preferably reduce them. Examples of where today's technology is taken as the basis, but developments are progressing, are: — determination of hydrogen content; — minimum area reduction for rolling of grooved rails and associated construction rail profiles; — roller straightening effects on contact scrub.

NOTE Linear masses have been calculated based on a density of steel of 7,85 kg/dm3. 7 Manufacture 7.1 Product integrity 7.1.1 Factory production control All grooved rails and associated construction rail profiles shall be produced under a comprehensive system of production control in order to ensure confidence in the conformity of the finished product. The system shall address this document to ensure that the finished products consistently comply with requirements to achieve the product integrity necessary to provide assurance of product safety in track. The manufacturer shall demonstrate by documented evidence continuing compliance with the factory production control system required. Manufacturers having a factory production control system such as EN ISO 9001 shall be recognized as satisfying the minimum requirements specified by this clause. 7.1.2 Best practice manufacture The product shall be manufactured to the best practices as defined in 7.1.1. NOTE This is to ensure that the rail attributes, described in the introduction, which are not known in an exact manner or are not practically measurable, achieve the required high level of product integrity in track. SIST EN 14811:2019

EN 14811:2019 (E) 11 7.2 Blooms Basic oxygen steel or electric arc furnace steel shall be used for the manufacture of grooved rails and associated construction rail profiles. In the case of electric arc steel, a secondary ladle arc refining facility shall be used. Steels for head-hardened grooved rails shall be vacuum-degassed. Only continuously-cast materials shall be used for manufacturing of blooms. 7.3 Grooved rails and associated construction rail profiles The rail manufacturing process used is at the discretion of the manufacturer. If the purchaser so requests, however, he shall indicate the method and main characteristics. The manufacturer shall not change these without informing the purchaser beforehand. The scale shall be removed by means of highly-pressurized water between the removal of the blooms from the heating furnace and the last pass in order to minimize surface damage and roughness. If the linear mass of the profile is less than 110 kg/m, the original cross-section area of the continuously-cast bloom shall be at least 8 times greater than that of the rail profile to be rolled. An exception applies for the profile 105C1 where the original cross-section area of the continuously-cast bloom shall be at least 7,5 times greater than that of the rail profile to be rolled. For heavier profiles (construction rails), the original cross-section area shall be at least 2,5 times greater than that of the rail profile to be rolled. In this case, the suitability for heat treatment may be limited. The straightening of the rails shall be done in a two-step roller-straightening process that straightens the rails about the axes x-x and y-y described in Annex A. Straightening presses may be used for end straightening or for correcting locally limited deviations from straightness. The rolled marking shall be protected from the effect of the straightening rolls. Dividing into finished lengths shall be carried out by cold-sawing. Other cutting methods may be applied, provided that the microstructure remains unchanged. Any burr shall be removed without resulting in any noticeable bevelling of the profile. Fishplate holes in the web of the rail shall be made round with smooth walls and be deburred. Tie bar holes shall be round or oval. Round holes shall be stamped or drilled, oval holes stamped or milled. The edges of tie bar holes shall not have any dangerous burrs. No rolling beads shall be present at the rail head, grooved head or outer edges of the foot. Exceptions may be agreed between the purchaser and the manufacturer, but the inside edge of the grooved head shall not be sharp. 7.4 Marking 7.4.1 Rolling marks The following rolling marks shall be rolled on the outside of the web (running head side) in raised marks between 0,6 mm and 1, 3mm and in characters that are clearly legible between 15 mm and 20 mm high: — the identification of the mill; — the last two figures of the year of manufacture; — the grooved rail or construction rail profile identification (see Tables A.1 and A.2); — the symbol for the steel grade (see Table 1). SIST EN 14811:2019

EN 14811:2019 (E) 12 Short lines shall be approximately half the length of the long lines. The position of the rolling mark is specified in Table 2.

The code shall allow the following information to be identified: — the number of the heat from which the rail has been rolled; — the number of the strand and the position of the bloom within this strand; — the position of the rail in the bloom (A, B…. Y). The identification mark of the rail shall be stamped at least once by the manufacturer on one of the two sides of the web of the hot-rolled rail. The figures and letters shall be clearly legible and 16 mm high. The stamped characters shall have a flat or radius (1 mm to 1,5 mm radius) face with bevels at the side. The marks shall be on a 10° angle from the vertical and shall have rounded corners. The stamping shall be not greater than 1,0 mm deep along the centre of the web. The design of the characters shall be as shown in Figure 2. If the rail does not have any stamped mark, it shall be identified by means of a code made by rotary burr. NOTE Subsequent cutting of the rails can result in more than one rail having the same identity. 7.4.3 Other identification At the request of the purchaser, the rails can be marked with paint. The colour and position of these paint marks shall be specified by the purchaser. 7.4.4 Exceptions The requirements of 7.4.1 and 7.4.2 do not apply to construction rail profiles 310C1, 338C1 or 42C1.
