THE KANSAS TEST TRACK. NON-CONVENTIONAL TRACK STRUCTURES. DESIGN REPORT

The report discusses the design of three non-conventional railroad track support structures. These non-conventional structures, which include a continuously reinforced concrete slab, twin cast-in-place concrete beams and twin precast concrete beams, are part of a research program to develop practical, low maintenance, high quality track structures for conventional and advanced rail vehicles. Included in this report are discussions of basic structural concepts, design methods and models, and recommended construction, inspection and maintenance techniques. (Author)
