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.
