INCREASED EXPENDITURE ON BALLAST IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF NEW RAILWAY LINES

ZWIEKSZONE ZUZYCIE MATERIALU PODSYPKOWEGO PRZY BUDOWIE NOWYCH LINII KOLEJOWYCH

The Civil Engineering Institute of Warsaw Technical University has completed a study on the problem of expenditure on stone chippings for ballast on new lines, in connection with the PKP's recently laid CMK/Silesia-Warsaw High-speed Trunk Line. When calculating this expenditure, a thicker layer of ballast was provided for at the outset, to allow for future settling under the traffic load. The calculation formulae are followed by an analysis of the factors which determine the additional ballast requirements.
