The Laboratory for Cross Ties of the Kharkov Transport Engineering Academy carried out studies in 1975-1976 to ascertain the condition of sleepers which have had to sustain a 100-million freight tonnage over a period of 8 to 12 years. These studies have determined the volume of cross tie defects, the resistance of the concrete to cracks and frost as well as the degree of corrosion. The results are given in table form.
