ENGINEERING FABRICS....USED AND RESEARCHED BY SOUTHERN PACIFIC

Southern Pacific has built a 1300-ft test track on nonwoven fabric and instrumented it to determine the stabilizing qualities of this material, as well as its other qualities. During the test, SP continues to install the fabrics at sites where unstable subgrades result in high track maintenance costs. Test will give new insights into behavior of fabrics in the total track structure. Data collected includes loads carried, ballast contamination, moisture transfer in the subgrade and durability of the fabrics used.
