Functions of Track Ballast alongside the Railway .Deze pagina vertalen

In fact, the track ballast serves a number of purposes. First of all, it makes sure that tracks stay in place when super-heavy trains roll by on them. It also plays an instrumental role in keeping any vegetation in check that might grow around the tracks (and make the ground beneath the tracks weaker).

Evolution of Longitudinal Resistance .

Moreover, the ballast longitudinal resistance and its evolution trend under cyclic longitudinal changes are still unknown, which play an important role in the thermal buckling and stress deformation mechanism of a ballasted railway track. Consequently, it is not possible to use them as the basis for quantitative predictions of the ballast behavior in different scenarios. More particularly, the ...

Track Longitudinal Resistance | A railway track blog

On ballasted track, the longitudinal resistance of a fastening is defined by the European Norm EN 13841-2:2012 to be at least 7 kN. This is equivalent to a distributed longitudinal resistance of around 12 kN /m of rail. The fastenings for high speed track (V>250 km/h) the minimum longitudinal resistance is 9 kN (around 15 kN /m of rail).

Track buckling is a complicated phenomenon that is caused by a wide range of parameters including the nature of track loading and the lateral and longitudinal resistance of a track. In this paper, the results of a field study on a test track in the Aprin railway station (in the southwest region of Tehran city) are presented to investigate the lateral and longitudinal resistance of the ...

Track Stability - Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board

2.1 Track instability Longitudinal and lateral movements of the track are constrained by the rail, fastenings, sleepers, and ballast. If the resistance provided by these track components are insufficient, then the track is likely to buckle under the high longitudinal compressive forces developed in the rails. • Factors that can contribute to track instability include the following: • Cross ...
