LABORATORY INVESTIGATIONS OF THE STABILITY OF RAILROAD TRACK TIES ON REINFORCED BALLAST

ETUDES EN LABORATOIRE DE LA STABILITE DE TRAVERSES FERROVIAIRES PLACEES SUR UN BALLAST ARME

The results have been presented of laboratory investigations of the stability of loaded track tie resting on sand ballast of great nonelastic deformability and reinforced with steel net. The investigations have been carried out at special investigation station at which Winkler type foundation was modeled. With reference to a track tie loaded at the same ballast without reinforcement much less tie settlements and more uniform distribution of the pressure at foundation were obtained.
