Beating stiff track

A method being used by the Swedish Transport Administration, Trafikverket, in order to detect variations in track stiffness is profiled in this article. These variations can lead to severe infrastructure problems and can be a time-consuming and expensive problem to identify. This new method is improving the cost effectiveness of detection. This method combines the more expensive tests from specialized machines with those already carried out for measuring track geometry by a track recording car. Details of the method are presented here.
