Railway applications - Track - Demountable machines and associated equipment - Part 1: Technical requirements for running and working

This part of ISO 22476 specifies the equipment requirements, execution of and reporting on the Ménard pressuremeter test. NOTE 1 This part of ISO 22476 fulfils the requirements for the Ménard pressurermeter test, as part of the geotechnical investigation and testing according to EN 1997-1 and EN 1997-2. This part of ISO 22476 describes the procedure for conducting a Ménard pressuremeter test in natural soils, treated or untreated fills and in weak rocks, either on land or off-shore. The pressuremeter test results of this part of ISO 22476 are suited to a quantitative determination of ground strength and deformation parameters. They may yield lithological information. They can also be combined with direct investigation (e.g. sampling according to ISO 22475-1) or compared with other in situ tests (see EN 1997-2:2007, 2.4.1.4(2) P, 4.1 (1) P and 4.2.3(2) P). The Ménard pressuremeter test is performed by the radial expansion of a tricell probe placed in the ground (see Figure 1). During the injection of the liquid volume in the probe, the inflation of the three cells first brings the outer cover of the probe into contact with the pocket wall and then presses on them resulting in a soil displacement. Pressure applied to and the associated volume expansion of the probe are measured and recorded so as to obtain the stress-strain relationship of the soil as tested. Together with results of investigations with ISO 22475-1 being available, or at least with identification and description of the ground according to ISO 14688-1 and ISO 14689-1 obtained during the pressuremeter test operations, the test results of this part of ISO 22476 are suited to the quantitative determination of a ground profile, including
— the Ménard EM modulus,
— the Ménard limit pressure pLM and
— the Ménard creep pressure pfM.
This part of ISO 22476 refers to a probe historically described as the 60 mm G type probe. This part of ISO 22476 applies to test depths limited to 50 m and test pressure limited to 5 MPa. NOTE 2 Ménard pressuremeter tests are carried out with other probe diameters and pocket dimensions such as shown
below.
Two alternative methods of measurement are provided as follows.
— Procedure A: data are recorded manually.
— Procedure B: data are recorded automatically.

Applications ferroviaires - Voie - Machines déraillables et éléments associés - Partie 1 : Prescriptions techniques pour la circulation et le travail

1.1   Généralités
La présente Norme européenne traite des prescriptions techniques pour minimiser les risques de danger spécifiques au domaine ferroviaire des machines déraillables (désignées ci-après comme «machines») et des équipements associés. Ces risques peuvent se produire lors des opérations de mise en service, d’exploitation et de maintenance de ces machines lorsque ces opérations sont réalisées conformément aux spécifications du fabricant ou de son mandataire. La présente Norme européenne s’applique aux machines déraillables qui ne sont pas prévues pour interagir avec les systèmes de signalisation et de commande en exploitation. Elles sont uniquement destinées à se déplacer et à travailler dans des conditions particulières d’exploitation définies par le gestionnaire d’infrastructure. D’autres Normes européennes traitent d’autres machines ; voir l’Annexe D.
Cette partie de l’EN 15955 traite des exigences ferroviaires techniques; la Partie 2 définit les prescriptions relatives à la «déclaration de conformité» d’une machine par le fabricant, à l’exception de celles classées dans l’Annexe 4 de la Directive Machine (2006/42/CE) qui exige une vérification de la conformité par un organisme autorisé.
Ces machines déraillables ne sont pas prévues pour être des véhicules tels que définis dans la Directive Interopérabilité et ne sont pas autorisées à circuler sur les lignes ferroviaires ouvertes à un trafic normal. Si nécessaire, elles devront être autorisées ou mises en service comme établi dans la directive 2008/57/CE relative à l’interopérabilité.
Des prescriptions supplémentaires peuvent s’appliquer pour la circulation sur les infrastructures ferroviaires à voies larges ou étroites, sur des lignes de tramway, sur des chemins de fer autres que ceux à adhérence rail/roue et sur des infrastructures ferroviaires souterraines.
La présente Norme européenne s’applique aussi aux machines et à leurs équipements associés qui, en configuration de travail, prennent partiellement appui sur le ballast ou sur la plate-forme.
La présente Norme européenne ne s’applique pas:
   aux exigences relatives à la qualité du travail ou aux performances de la machine;
   aux exigences spécifiques fixées par chaque exploitant d’infrastructure ferroviaire pour l’emploi des machines et qui font l’objet de négociations entre le fabricant et l’acheteur;
   aux machines séparées montées pour une durée temporaire sur des machines déraillables ou équipements associés;
La présente Norme européenne ne tient pas compte des prescriptions supplémentaires suivantes:
   mise en œuvre de la machine dans des conditions faisant l’objet de règles spéciales, par exemple, atmosphère potentiellement explosive;
   risques dus à des causes naturelles, par exemple tremblement de terre, foudre, inondation;
   méthodes de travail;
   exploitation dans des conditions de travail sévères nécessitant des mesures particulières, par exemple : travail en tunnels ou en tranchées, conditions climatiques extrêmes (en dessous de - 20 °C ou au-dessus de + 40 °C), environnements corrosifs ou contaminants, champs magnétiques de forte intensité;
   risques dus à des erreurs de logiciels;
   risques dus aux mouvements de charges librement suspendues.
Les paramètres d’exploitation correspondant à l’utilisation prévue de ces machines peuvent être spécifiés par chaque gestionnaire d’infrastructure, par exemple la vitesse maximale autorisée pour ces machines risque d’être limitée par le gestionnaire d’infrastructure - la conformité aux dispositions de la présente norme ne signifie pas que les machines sont autorisées à se déplacer à ladite vitesse. Ces machines ne seront pas autorisées sur une voie ouverte à la circulation ferroviaire normale.

EN 15955-1:2013 (E) 4 Introduction

The machinery concerned and the extent to which hazards, hazardous situations and events are covered are indicated in the scope of this European Standard. This European Standard was prepared to meet the basic requirements of EU Directives to facilitate an open market for goods and services. Demountable machines as specified in 3.1 form the object of this standard. This standard deals with railway specific risks of the demountable machines defined in Clause 4 when running and working on railway infrastructures. The safety requirements in relation to the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC are dealt with in EN 15955-2 of this series of standards. Deviations or special national conditions are dealt with in Annex A. The risks which exist in all mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic and other components of machines and which are dealt with in the relevant European Standards are not within the scope of this European Standard. If necessary, references are made to appropriate standards of this type. SIST EN 15955-1:2013

EN 15955-1:2013 (E) 5 1 Scope 1.1 General This European Standard specifies the technical requirements to minimise the specific railway hazards of self propelled demountable machines – henceforward referred to as machines – and associated equipment, which can arise during the commissioning, the operation and the maintenance of these machines when carried out in accordance with the specification given by the manufacturer or his authorised representative. These machines are not designed or intended to operate signalling and control systems and are only designed and intended to work and run under special operating conditions specifically designated by the infrastructure manager. Other machines are dealt with in other European Standards; see Annex D. This part of EN 15955 deals with the technical railway requirements; Part 2 deals with the requirements for the machine to be declared conformant by the manufacturer, except in the case of machines classified in Annex 4 of the Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC) which requires conformity check in conjunction with a notified body. These demountable machines are not intended to be vehicles as defined in the Interoperability Directive and are not permitted to run on the railway lines open to normal traffic. If this is required, they will need to be authorised or placed into service as set out in the Interoperability Directive 2008/57/EC. Additional requirements can apply for running on infrastructures with narrow gauge or broad gauge lines, lines of tramways, railways utilising other than adhesion between the rail and rail wheels and underground infrastructures. This European Standard is also applicable to machines and associated equipment that in working configuration are partly supported on the ballast or the formation. This European Standard does not apply to the following:  requirements for quality of the work or performance of the machine;  specific requirements established by the railway infrastructure operator for the use of machines, which will be the subject of negotiation between the manufacturer and the purchaser;  separate machines temporarily mounted on demountable machines and associated equipment. This European Standard does not establish the additional requirements for the following:  operation subject to special rules, e.g. potentially explosive atmospheres;  hazards due to natural causes, e.g. earthquake, lightning, flooding;  working methods;  operation in severe working conditions requiring special measures, e.g. work in tunnels or in cuttings, extreme environmental conditions (below – 20 °C or above + 40 °C), corrosive environments, contaminating environments, strong magnetic fields;  hazards due to errors in software;  hazards occurring when used to handle suspended loads which may swing freely. The intended use of these machines may have operational parameters specified by each infrastructure manager, e.g. the maximum speed allowed for these machines is likely to be limited by the infrastructure manager; compliance with the clauses of this standard does not confer permission for machines to travel at this speed. These machines will not be allowed on a track open to normal railway traffic. SIST EN 15955-1:2013

5 Railway specific safety requirements and/or measures 5.1 General Machines shall comply with the safety requirements and/or protective measures in accordance with Clauses 5 and 6, and supplied with information in accordance with Clause 7. Machines shall be designed to work on working track within the geometric limits, see EN 14033-2:2008+A1:2011, Annex F, and shall be designed to work on operating track. Machines that can only work on operating tracks shall display in each driving cab and on the identification plate an indication of that restriction. 5.2 Gauge 5.2.1 Running gauge 5.2.1.1 General Except as shown in 5.2.1.2, machines in running configuration shall meet the dimensional requirements of EN 15273-2. The critical points near the limits of the permissible kinematic gauge, see EN 14033-1:2011, Annex C, shall be recorded in the technical documentation detailed in Clause 7. 5.2.1.2 Special case for restrictive gauges Machines intended to travel on infrastructures with more restrictive gauges shall conform to the specific rules of those infrastructures and the corresponding restrictions shall be indicated on their operating permits.

EN 15955-1:2013 (E) 12 5.2.2 Demountable machine in running configuration 5.2.2.1 Stowing of moveable machine parts in running configuration  When the machine is in the running configuration, any movable equipment which has the capacity to go outside the gauge shall be capable of being stowed in a manner which prevents inadvertent or unintended movement out of the gauge. All such moveable parts and assemblies forming part of the machine that are unpacked in order to allow the machine to work in rail and non-rail configuration shall, in their stowed state, be secured by devices capable of resisting the foreseeable forces encountered during running, which shall not rely upon a power source to retain the locking function. Moveable parts shall be held by efficient locks. The visible positive locking components in running configuration shall be painted in red. If the locking mechanism is powered, the control of locking should preferably be possible from inside the machine gauge. Or:  Check valves on hydraulic systems which shall prevent movement and fail safe. It shall be obvious to anyone checking the machine that these parts of the machine are locked in their stowed position. Furthermore, for locking devices operable from the cab, either a red warning light shall illuminate on the driver's desk to indicate if any moveable part of the machine is not locked or a green light shall indicate on the driver's desk that all moveable parts of the machine are locked. 5.2.2.2 Operating controls in running configuration When in running configuration, all operating controls not related to running, including locking devices, shall be deactivated automatically. 5.2.3 Working limit 5.2.3.1 Interference of gauge Machines and their moveable component parts shall be designed and built to work without unintentional interference with the kinematic gauge necessary for the running of machines permitted by the infrastructure manager without running restrictions on the operating track. For the different zones of work and the zone limit between the working track and the adjacent operating track in service, see EN 14033-2:2008+A1:201
