DYNAMIC BEHAVIOR OF RAILWAY TRACK

In 1995, the Faculty of Civil Engineering of TU Delft completed a study on the behavior of 'Paved-in light rail track constructions'. Apart from investigating the different construction types, in-track measurements of quasi-static deflections under passing vehicles were conducted. These measurements aimed at estimating construction parameters to analyze the dynamic response in the vertical direction. Using an excitation hammer, dynamic responses were measured at a number of locations and these were compared with calculated values. This article discusses some of these results and provides the theoretical background.
