In general, railroad track is consists of rail, rail joint, railroad tie and Non- ballasted track, also called ballastless track, is the railway track. The technical concept of a railway track consisting of ballast, sleepers, and rails is very old and has stood the test of time. Such a system is simple and can be. When the new high speed line Nüremberg-Ingolstadt is opened for service in , more than km of ballastless track will be in operation in Germany.

Passengers have always assessed riding comfort in a train by their individual impressions. REX elements were inserted in the project of different trzck lines abroad: Advantages High attenuation of vibrations: The use of a ballastless track for high-speed operations enables a more direct routing of train lines, with tighter radii and greater slopes.

Railway line types Railway track layouts. This experience resulted, for example, in further development of the full-block bi-block sleeper, to design the type B TS-M. All structures demonstrate only small differences between both measurements. Consequently in Korea, a frame shaped S. For the structuraldesign of S.

Ballastless track

Hence, for necessary reconstruction of a S. A guide to railroad track. BTE slab track Of Zublin; discrete rail seats on a continuously reinforced slab with ground surface.

The success of ballastless-track technology is primarily based on the following advantages: Views Read Edit View history.

Ballastless Track

Building an elaborate train washing system used to be a very time-consuming job. Dynamic deflection measurements Figure 18 under high speed i. The traditional track whose bed is made up of ballast, also called ordinary track and what is often known as ballasted track.

Slab track is one of the most important types of non-ballast track structure.


Ability to correct levelling. The usual preventive maintenance is limited to rail grinding, since tamping is not necessary due to the absence of ballast. This tool allows the collection of large amounts of data, its analysis and the prediction of situations based on statistical patterns.

In general, railroad track is consists of rail, rail jointrailroad tie and railroad fasteners, etc. The risk of loosening of dowels or anchor bolts of the fastening by free cracking can be minimised by transverse notches on top of the concrete slab with a spacing of 1. This sleeper is characterized by reduction in total structural height. Slab track design lacks the necessity for underlying ballast because the rails are anchored directly to a concrete slab. Having different possible applications in the field of the railtracks for undergrounds and tramways, REX Articoli Tecnici SA produces boots and the microcellular pads with a static and dynamic stiffness that are remarkably interesting.

The omission of ballast allows for narrower and lighter structure than would be possible with a ballasted track.

The journey of ballastless track

A ballastless track may be backfilled to the rail level to allow unimpeded access across the track access for vehicles. Ballastless Track ACCIONA Construction, in anticipation of the next baolastless of investment in rail infrastructure, and aware of the important role that the ballastless track will play in this surge, as well as of the obstacle to competitiveness caused by the use of commercial systems, has promoted the development of its own ballastless track system.

A ballastless track is expensive but is likely to require little gailway no maintenance during its lifetime.

By coupling the frames at the joints Figure 15 and notching the surface of the frames, a similar long-term behaviour can be expected as with continuously reinforced concrete slabs or the coupled slab track system in Karlsfeld. The breaking of the ballast under the pressure exerted by the load causes geometrical unevenness and clogging of the ballast bed by ballsatless particles.


Fouling of the ballast due to wind-blown sand is a major problei in arid areas.

In Figure 16, the mean static rail deflection of different S.

Therefore, ballastless tracks must be concreted within a tolerance of 0. The experience in Germany and other countries has been that the conventional track may be used for speeds of up. The general problem that trrack with ballasted tracks is that the ballast material slowly deteriorates due to the load of the traffic.

While numbers vary depending on construction type and track infrastructure ballastless tracks are generally more ballastlless to infrastructures that are also made of concrete, as is the case in tunnels or on viaductsthe Deutsche Bahn estimated in that construction costs of ballastless tracks are 40 percent higher than those of traditional superstructure. This website uses cookies to improve your experience. Earlier RHEDA models occasionally developed longitudinal cracks between the trough and the infill concrete that could influence the long-term behaviour of the ballastless track system.

For evaluation purposes, it is necessary to take into consideration the interaction between vehicle and track. Accept Reject Read More.
