Book description

Links Geotechnics with Railway Track Engineering and Railway Operation

Good railway track and railway operations depend on good geotechnics, in several different ways and at varying levels.

Railway Geotechnics covers track, track substructure, load environment, materials, mechanics, design, construction, measurements, and management. Illustrated by case studies, with an emphasis on the geotechnical aspects of railway engineering, it discusses these topics from a historical perspective. It also presents the methodologies and best practices developed over the past 20 years.

Written by Four Experienced Professionals

This book:

  • Emphasizes the practical aspects and best practices for railway track and substructure
  • Contains guidelines for design, construction, and maintenance of railway track and substructure
  • Provides many examples and case studies

Railway Geotechnics is written primarily for professionals and graduate students, and begins with the fundamentals and basic principles, leading in to practical applications. The authors bring considerable experience and expertise, with many years of research and development, academia, railway operations, and consulting.
