ROADBED STABILIZATION SOIL PROBLEMS IN RAILWAY TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERING

In this paper soil problems are examined in terms of the cut and fill of line changes, in the daylighting of tunnels and in the performance of track. Included are planning remedial construction to preclude landslides, geometry studies for daylighting tunnels, design of new cut slopes including those in the proximity of abandoned coal workings, fill design in new construction effects of water content of borrow materials on compaction, and planning and control of waste areas.
