Design and experimental results of a Resilient Rail developed for the mitigation of vibration and noise under train operation are summarized. The paper is divided into three parts, Part 1 treating the design, performance, durability test and field test of the Resilient Rail on revenue lines; Part 2 the noise-abating effect of this rail; and Part 3 the qualitative examination of anti-vibration rubber employed in 9 revenue line test. It is concluded that the Resilient Rail has been adequately designed; the metallic parts and anti-vibration rubber possess ample strength; the Resilient Rail can reduce the noise by about 4 phons (A) on elevated tracks or bridges; and also a vibration-abating effect can be counted on.
