Abstract

The dynamic interaction problem of ties of a railway track is treated by a two-dimensional analytical solution. The resulting stiffness-functions are compared with the solution of the interaction problem of two foundations subjected to an incident Rayleigh wave. The compliances of a single tie and a system of interacting ties are given together with experimental data of a test track, excited by a new developed testing vehicle.

Interaction of Railway Ties — Comparison with Seismic Wave Data

St. Louis, Missouri

The dynamic interaction problem of ties of a railway track is treated by a two-dimensional analytical solution. The resulting stiffness-functions are compared with the solution of the interaction problem of two foundations subjected to an incident Rayleigh wave. The compliances of a single tie and a system of interacting ties are given together with experimental data of a test track, excited by a new developed testing vehicle.
