Abstract

A conventional track structure system consists of rails, ties, ballast, subballast and subgrade. To design a track on the basis of live load response and permanent settlement, it is necessary to have knowledge of dynamic stresses in the foundation layers of the track. It needs to determine the material properties and thus, the dynamic and permanent deformation response of the track structure. This paper gives results of the experimental measurements of static and dynamic engineering soil parameters evaluated by means of box tests, Bencat 1989.

Verification by Comparison Between Static and Dynamic Engineering Soil Parameters Evaluated by Means of Box Tests

St. Louis, Missouri

A conventional track structure system consists of rails, ties, ballast, subballast and subgrade. To design a track on the basis of live load response and permanent settlement, it is necessary to have knowledge of dynamic stresses in the foundation layers of the track. It needs to determine the material properties and thus, the dynamic and permanent deformation response of the track structure. This paper gives results of the experimental measurements of static and dynamic engineering soil parameters evaluated by means of box tests, Bencat 1989.
