REFLECTIONS ON THE THEORY OF ERROR WHEN MARKING OUT TRACK CURVES

FEHLERTHEORETISCHE UEBERLEGUNGEN ZUR GLEISBOGENABSTECKUNG

With reference to two methods of measurement used in practice when pegging out track curves, the author describes the interdependence between the inevitable inaccuracies in measuring and staking, and explains the allowable error for the appreciation of the exactitude of the track bed position. He then notes that lower limit of the allowable error is considerably exceeded in the case of application of the method of coordinates. To be able to comply with the limit of error allowed, when marking out by the Nalenz method, the measurement of the height of the deflection must offer a certain degree of exactitude and systematic errors of method must be eliminated from the angle-diagram layout.
