Case Study: Data Analytics

ENSCO Rail Data Analytics

Project: Ballast Fouling and Trending Study

The Challenge: Determine criteria for class-based approach to fouled ballast safety enforcement.

The ENSCO Approach: Collect and analyze pertinent information via track inspection vehicles, long-term wayside instrumentation and ground-penetrating radar.

Result: Objective criteria for more consistent enforcement of fouled ballast safety.

Case Study: Data Analytics

Data Analytics Case Study - Track Feature Risk Assessment - ENSCO RailProject: Track Feature Risk Assessment Using V/TI Data

The Challenge: Assess track feature health/risk using Vehicle/Track Interaction monitors and determine if the approach can scale to fleet size and offers greater coverage than traditional systems.

The ENSCO Approach: Use analytical models that can be trained and applied to a variety of track features to develop a risk assessment index algorithm to rank features and conditions, and identify/prioritize high-risk sites.

Result: Track feature-specific Bridge Risk Index that provided health and derailment risk assessments for bridges to prioritize maintenance.
