CHOOSING THE RIGHT TRACK FOR URBAN CONDITIONS

Several conurbations in South America, India and the Far East are building or planning metros to cope with a huge rise in population. The author draws on five year's experience as Deconsult's chief consulting engineer to the Sao Paulo metro--which opened last September--to present and discuss technical and economic criteria for the choice of track design and components, and for the design and installation of concrete slab track with vibration suppression.
