SERVICE TEST OF SOLID MANGANESE STEEL CROSSING FROGS WITH PRESTRESSED CONCRETE SUPPORT VERSUS TIMBERS

This preliminary report discusses the service test of two test sections of prestressed concrete crossing support under a solid manganese railroad crossing. A control crossing using creosoted oak timbers supported on 11-ft longitudinal-bolted timbers under each rail is used. The design, construction, and installation of the support are presented. A discussion of stress-strain measurements is presented. The stress data had not yet been analyzed at the time of this report.
