LATERAL STABILITY OF RAILS, ESPECIALLY OF LONG WELDED RAILS. ENQUIRY RELATING TO LAYING IN CURVES
This report discusses the results of a questionnaire to determine the state-of-the-art of welded rail. Includes discussion of the history of the uses of long welded rail, and of tests to determine the characteristics of such rail under varying climatic conditions. Report also covers track buckling tests at Karlsrule and London in the late 1950's and includes a chapter on the characteristics of track incorporating long-welded rail. Various theories on the stability of long welded rails are covered briefly, and an extensive bibliography is included.
