USE OF COMPUTER IN THE LAYING OF TRACKS FOR THE NEW SANYO LINE

In the Okayama-Hakata section of the Sanyo line, slab tracks (on straight or curved sections) are scheduled to be laid a distance of 272 kms. The track layout is verified by means of column ribs placed at standard interval: 5 m, on which a datum instrument is installed. The intervals depend on the construction of the track and the method for calculating the versine is very complicated. Accordingly, a computer is used for calculations; the article gives a detailed description of the procedure used with examples.
