ACCIONA Construction, in anticipation of the next surge of investment in rail infrastructure, and aware of the important role that the ballastless track will play in . Rail traffic is reaching out toward new horizons on ballastless track systems. The arguments are indeed convincing: long life cycles, top speed, ride comfort, and.

Adaptability of vertical rigidity: Munich University of Technology. Ballastless tracks can be built on traci asphalt or concrete supporting layers. The risk of loosening of dowels or anchor bolts of the fastening by free cracking can be minimised by transverse notches on top of the concrete slab with a spacing of 1. Stability, precision, ballaxtless ride comfort Long life cycles and practically no maintenance Flexibility and end-to-end effectiveness in application Basis for optimal routing of rail line.

Starting from the basis of traditional trough-track designs with mono-block sleepers, RHEDA track models were further developed to track systems with bi-block sleepers. Essential for this structure is an accurately paved concrete slab. The values give information about the scatter of resilient support.

Variation coefficient of rail deflection.

Sinceit has official German approval for high-speed applications. Imprint Data protection Disclaimer. Mean static rail deflection kN-axle.

BTD V2-structurewith concrete sleeper panel and anchors on a continuously reinforced concrete slab. Ballastless concrete slab tracks of different design are in revenue service for more than thirty years. This change of policy by the management of DB AG has spurred the road construction companies in Germany to develop new ballastless track structures 4.

Hence, for high speed traffic, a constant dynamic behaviour with increasing service time can be assumed, if a matured design and good quality is available. Earlier RHEDA models occasionally developed longitudinal cracks between the trough and the infill concrete that could influence the long-term behaviour of the ballastless track system. The arguments are indeed convincing: With its comparatively very low structural height, and with the possibility of achieving optimal required track position, ballast track technology offers highly attractive and beneficial solutions as end-to-end systems technology for main-track and turnout sections, for application on a uniform basis on embankments, bridges, and tunnels.

Non-ballasted track, also called ballastless track, is the railway track whose bed is composed of concrete and bituminous mixture, etc.

Ballasted Track And Non-Ballasted Track | Railway Track Comparison

There is no doubt that non-ballasted track is the advanced track technology in the world. Railway line types Railway track layouts. Figure 5 demonstrates the effect of high resilient fastening systems on the vertical vibration velocity 3. Passengers have always assessed riding comfort in a train by their individual impressions. Test track Hoesbach Hence, for necessary reconstruction of a S. Send this to a friend Your email Recipient email What colour is grass?

However, this significantly increases the investment costs for a ballasted track. As we all know, ballasted track and non-ballasted track are two typical kind of railway track. You may also like: In addition, these modifications enabled further improvement in the bond of the sleeper in the structural concrete. These benefits enable reduction, or even elimination, of costs and work for civil-engineering structures.

Consequently, these are the benefits that have led to application of ballastless track technology in continuing major projects for rail lines: By coupling the frames at the joints Figure 15 and notching the surface of the frames, a similar long-term behaviour can be expected as with continuously reinforced concrete slabs or the coupled slab track system in Karlsfeld.

As the foundation of whole railway track system, railroad baloastless provides a plat for train. The restoration of the Berlin MRT system the S-Bahn enabled gaining of extensive valuable insights into the structural engineering of such track systems.

Ballastless Track

Track systems installed on asphalt supporting layers predominantly feature direct-support configurations: When used in stations, ballastless tracks are easier to clean. Hence a fine cracking can be ballastlese in a spacing of 0. In many cases, a maintenance-free track system is indeed the more cost-effective solution over the long run.

Old definitions from Figure 1 could still be valid today when riding on the first and third generation of ICE along existing old ballasted tracks or on new high speed lines in Germany with ballastless track and trying to write in a notebook.

Bogl system on the line Ingolstadt-Nuremberg. Ballastless tracks therefore offer a high consistency in track geometrythe adjusting of which is not possible after the concreting of the superstructure.

In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Inthe basic structure of the modern track structure was completed. This sleeper is characterized by reduction in total structural height. Available measurement results indicate the expected favourable structural behaviour and prove the low maintenance requirements.
