RAILWAY TRACK RESEARCH--THEORETICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL

Presents theoretical approach for determining stresses that result from vertical and lateral bending of track and stresses that act in the vicinity of the contact area between wheel and rail. The influence of thermal and residual stresses on track behavior is discussed and the dynamic deflections and stress resulting from the action of moving wheels and track irregularities are considered. The occurrence of track failure is analyzed on the basis of failure criteria and fatigue theories.
