Track behavior under traffic and environmental conditions can be predicted by using appropriate methods of analysis. Well-developed concepts and procedures in the structural engineering field are used to illustrate methods of track analysis. These procedures are based on assumptions that often require verification by laboratory or field tests. In this paper, some of the approaches to the analysis of track structure and the methods for laboratory and field tests are discussed.
