PREDICTING THE RESILIENT BEHAVIOUR OF RAILWAY BALLAST

The aim of this paper is to investigate and quantify the resilient behavior of the ballast pavement layer by means of dynamic triaxial testing. Factors affecting dynamic triaxial testing on granular material were analyzed by means of a principal stress difference and the degree of fouling were varied during the triaxial tests. Relationships for the prediction of the resilient modulus are presented.
