OPTIMIZATION OF ELASTIC RAIL FOUNDATIONS

Efforts must be made to obtain the same elastic track properties in all permanent way constructions, a task to be accomplished by the rubber cushion in ballast-free bridges. Studies aimed at optimizing the cushion profile were made by means of photoelasticity. Variations of the shape factor and hardness of the cushion are intended to bring an optimum fixation of the shape of cushion.
