OVERALL EVALUATION OF TRACK CONDITIONS FOR THE PURPOSE OF PLANNING SYSTEMATIC MAINTENANCE

SYNTETYCZNA OCENA NAWIERZCHNI DLA PLANOWANIA NAPRAW BIEZACYCH CIAGTYCH

It is necessary to know what the actual condition of track is to draw up overall track maintenance plans. The author describes a "synthesis" method for evaluating track conditions using an Amsler dynamometer car with Matisa measuring equipment. An index which is a synthesis of track characteristics and condition (Ws) is established on the basis of a statistical analysis of 5 parameters (levelling, gauge, track distortion, superelevation, and alignment). The analysis contains variations of Ws in relation to acceptable train speeds and lineload. The author concludes with a recommendation concerning the use of the Ws index for planning track maintenance operations.
