Abstract:   (10914 Views)

Current practices in railway track analysis and design are reviewed and discussed in this paper. The

mechanical behavior of railway track structure comprising of various components has not been fully understood due

to the railway track structural complexity. Although there have been some improvements in the accuracy of current

track design methods in recent decades, there are still considerable uncertainties concerning the accuracy and

reliability of the current methods. This indicates a need for a thorough review and discussion on the current practices

in the analysis and design of railway track systems. In this paper, railway design approaches proposed by various

standards along with the results of a wide range of technical researches are studied and necessary suggestions are

made for the improvement of current practices in the analysis and design of railway track
