Project Details

Description

The document was divided in 6 parts. In part A) a calculation of the superstructure-rail fatigue, based on DB/BZA Munich 85a/Edition 04.1992, in part B) a calculation of rail stresses under combined loads was done.
part C): proof of a minimum duration of life of 30 years
part D): proof of a minimum duration of life (30 years) of curved switch-blades
Parts E) and F) deal with expansion and insulating joints.
