The intelligent estimation method (IEM) is based on approximations which can be described by the configuration and behavioral characteristic of the problem. This paper used the IEM in time domain (IEM-TD) which can be utilized to predict the current distribution and maximum current density. A detailed IEM technique to compute the current distribution over the surface of a rail, current profile around the rail, and maximum current density (Jmax) formula will be presented in this paper. The current distribution is computed for rectangular and circular rails that are shown in color figures. Finally, this paper considers the effect of the rail dimensions and material on these parameters that are shown in several figures. The results of this paper are compared to other published studies and FEM simulation.
