Abstract:

Not long ago, basic wood-tie track, outfitted with simple but time-tested cut spikes, could provide an adequate track structure for the demands of the nation's largest carriers, as well as those of transit and commuter systems. Today, many specialized urban markets use advanced fastening systems that employ noise-and-vibration attenuation components. On many heavy-haul roads, the fastener picture is clearly drawn from ever-increasing traffic and maintenance demands. This article looks at the significant activity - research, development, economic analysis and conversation - going on in the fastener part of the m/w field.
