TESTING LATERAL SLIPPING OF THE TRACK WITH A NEW DESIGN OF SLEEPER IN THE AUSTRIAN FEDERAL RAILWAYS

GLEISVERWERFUNGSVERSUCHE DER OESTERREICHISCHEN BUNDESBAHNEN MIT NEUEN SCHWELLENFORMEN

Tests on the lateral slipping of the track on a curve with a radius of 189 m have shown that the track's resistance to lateral displacement was considerably improved by modifying the shape of the sleepers, and that the welding of the rails was also possible with smaller radii. The resistance to lateral displacement of the Be 14 d sleeper with lugs is twice that of the B 14 sleeper without lugs, and 50% higher than the resistance of the Be 17 sleeper, which has about the same basic surface as the Be 14 d sleeper.
