Nowhere has this been more evident, and timely, than RailTEC’s research to improve the current concrete crosstie design practices. In North America, concrete continues to be a dominant crosstie material choice for demanding locations on heavy axle load (HAL) freight railroads with steep grades, sharp curves, and high annual gross tonnage. The longest tangent in the US is on the CSX (former SAL) line inland from Wilmington, NC. IIRC it's 78+ (almost 79) miles long. If you've been on I through Lumberton, NC you went over it on an overpass. SAL's many long straight stretches are the reason for the "Air Line" (another term for straight track) in the RR name.
of concrete sleepers and fastening systems (1). However, rail seat deterioration (RSD) has been preventing concrete sleepers from realizing their potential in terms of durability and performance. RSD is the degradation of the concrete surface underneath the rail and can lead to track maintenance issues. At early period, spike fastening system was applied on the track with wooden sleeper. Afterwards, with the use of concrete sleeper, clamp fastening system was designed and used early. With the speed increases gradually, great improvements have been made for designing new fastening system to meet higher requirements of tracks.
At FAST, the concrete tie track that was tested uses a Fastclip type of fastener system (Figure 1) and is part of a section of tangent track. At the revenue service western mega site located near Ogallala, Nebraska, the concrete tie track uses a SAFELOK® clip type of fastener system (Figure 2).

The state of the practice related to concrete slab track technology is summarized. Rail on tangent track is replaced. Fasteners used for slab track have evolved from t hose used for. 1. INTRODUCTION. Fasteners for securing rails directly to a concrete base were developed initially for use on bridges and in subway tunnels.
Elimination of a ballast layer had obvious advantages in minimising construction depth, and overall dimensions of structures, particularly of tunnels in city areas with a labyrinth of existing underground service pipes and : Bernard Bramall.
(c) Crossties, other than concrete, counted to satisfy the requirements set forth in paragraph (b)(4) of this section shall not be - (1) Broken through; (2) Split or otherwise impaired to the extent the crosstie will allow the ballast to work through, or will not hold spikes or rail fasteners; (3) So deteriorated that the crosstie plate or base of rail can move laterally 1/2 inch relative to.

In this study, a nonlinear analysis method was proposed to evaluate the serviceability review of a rail fastening Track fastening for tangent track on concrete.
book on concrete slab track at railway bridge ends. The serviceability review of the end deck is time-consuming in that it is necessary to calculate the force of fasteners; also, the design is complex because of the many girders, fasteners, and by: 1.
Our approach is to adapt to meet your needs. Let us apply our 30 years of track fastening experience to help solve your rail fastening needs. L.B. Foster Transit Products can provide fasteners not only for normal tangent and curved track installations, but also for special applications which include.
Track alignment includes both tangent and curved track. (4) Traffic variations include: a. Low density moderate speed, b. Medium density high speed, c. High density moderate speed, d. Very high density moderate speed. Additionally, certain track structure components are used in more than one of the test sections.
For example: 1. Coach screws are used for the direct or indirect fastening of the rail in various types of track onto wooden or concrete sleepers. The length of the coach screws used is between mm and mm. The coach screw has a screw thread made of wood and is used for wood and concrete sleepers.

Fasten steel tracks to concrete using /4 in. hex-head concrete screws. Lay out the position of the track, strike chalk lines, and drill a hole through the metal and into the concrete the full length of the screw. Use a hammer drill fitted with a carbide tipped masonry bit.
This European Standard is applicable to fastening systems in Categories A-E as specified in EN ‑,for use on concrete sleepers in ballasted track with maximum axle loads, and minimum curve radii as shown in Table 1.
Testing was conducted over seven adjacent concrete crossties in tangent and curve track utilizing TTC's Track Loading Vehicle (TLV) as well as passenger and freight train consists.
Measurements taken consisted of the wheel-rail input loads, component stresses (e.g. insulator post compression), concrete tie strains, and displacements of the rail.
The track on a railway or railroad, also known as the permanent way, is the structure consisting of the rails, fasteners, railroad ties (sleepers, British English) and ballast (or slab track), plus the underlying enables trains to move by providing a dependable surface for their wheels to roll upon.
For clarity it is often referred to as railway track (British English and UIC. Ready-Track framing is the fast and dependable way to frame curved walls on the jobsite. Simple to bend into smooth curves, it holds its shape without fasteners for easy positioning and installation. With flexible framing sections, Ready-Track creates a CFS framing system that can help you realize even the most challenging curved designs.
All tangent track on the final lift shall be laser aligned. Sleeper Packing Correction of track geometry defects by shimming on ballasted track is not permitted. Where packing of sleepers to remove voids and restore the track geometry relative to the track.
In the model a half passenger car is considered, and modeled with a multi-body system with 18 degrees of freedom, which runs on a tangent track at a constant speed.
The tangent track is modeled as. Slab Track.7 Slab Track (concrete slab or slabs with directly fixed track) must be provided where the vertical grade is An overpass must only have tangent track alignment; unless required at the tie-in to existing track alignments.
The Rail Fastening System is to attenuate noise and vibration. Concrete ties can be spaced at 28” center to center with an 8” ballast section. CWR is recommended when using concrete ties. M-8 steel ties (8mm or 5/16” section) can and placed on tangent track where possible.
Derails protecting other -than-mainline tracks shall be placed a minimum of Need both Power and Speed. Then you need TraxPin®. Aersomith's TraxPin® fasteners will do the job, working with the new GT38Li Gas Track Pinner, allowing tracking to concrete, block or 'll also improve your efficiency with less loading time and 8, shots per fully charged battery.
curved superelevated track by the use of a spiral or easement curve. A spiral is a curve whose degree of curve varies exponentially from infinity (tangent) to the degree of the body curve. The spiral completes two functions, including the gradual introduction of superelevation as well as guiding the railway vehicle from tangent track to curved.
