n Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Consideration of the elastic strain recovery rates of the formation layers of a railway track : railway and harbour engineering

Volume 23, Issue 4
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



Maintenance makes up a significant portion of the total life cycle costs of a railway track. The condition of the formation layers of a railway track dictates these maintenance costs to a large extent. The purpose of this study (a final-year BEng research project) was to aid the progression towards more cost-effective railway infrastructure by understanding the strain recovery process of the formation layers.
