OPTIMUM ADAPTATION OF THE CONVENTIONAL TRACK TO FUTURE TRAFFIC. DYNAMIC STABILISATION OF THE TRACK

This report collates and summarises the main results obtained to date from track stabilisation tests using dynamic vibration methods, particularly those relating to the lateral resistance of the track and the immediate deterioration of track level. Aspects to be studied in connection with the use of dynamic track stabilising machines are also dealt with. The results proved the effectiveness of artificial stabilisation of the track in restoring the lateral resistance after maintenance.
