Mitigation of track and ground vibrations by high speed trains at Ledsgård, Sweden

Excessive vibrations were observed at a section (Ledsgård) of the West Coast Line between Gothenburg and Kungsbacka in Sweden when the traffic with high speed trains started. Banverket (the Swedish National Rail Administration) initiated a research and development project and comprehensive measurements and analyses were performed. The dry deep mixing method was chosen to reduce the vibrations. In this report the design, execution and measurements of vibrations before and after the deep mixing are presented.
