PERMANENT DEFORMATIONS DUE TO THE SETTLEMENT OF BALLASTED TRACK

BLEIBENDE SETZUNGEN DES SCHOTTEROBERBAUES

A reduced model at scale 1/3 was developed to analyse the settling behaviour of ballasted track. The author gives detailed comments on the model laws. The study relates to the influence of the load amplitude and of initial loading. After testing, it was possible to propose a method for calculating settlement and defects in track levelling. The theory developed has been confirmed by verification by means of measurements made on railway lines.
