RECORDING TRACK GEOMETRY AT SPEED

Techniques and equipment for measurement and assessment of track geometry from a high-speed vehicle by British Railways are described. This technique has been adopted by British Railways for acquiring research data on track deterioration, weld deterioration and comparisons of track maintenance machine performance, and, also as a means of acquiring data on track quality for the control of the maintenance activity. Mathematical models are presented for the calculation of vertical profile and horizontal curvature measuring system.
