HOW THE TRACK WORKS UNDER THE TRAINS
KAK RABOTAET PUT' POD POEZDAMI
The book relates in a popular fashion the reasons for vertical, horizontal, transverse and longitudinal forces acting on track during passage of rolling stock; principles are examined for calculation of the stability and rigidity of track, as well as the determination of permissible train speeds. The requirements for rolling stock for reducing its influence on the track, as well as for the design of track and its maintenance for lowering the occurrence of stresses and deformations are examined. Problems of road bed work and switches under train load are examined. The book includes the bases for the fundamental norms and tolerances for the maintenance of the gauge on straight and curved track; the requirements for the track and rolling stock for sections with high speed train movements are examined. The book is intended for engineers and technicians of train maintenance, railroad and track service workers, and will be useful for railroad engineers working in industrial transportation.
