The primary disadvantage of a trak track is its significantly higher cost of initial construction. Slab track is one of the most important types of non-ballast track structure.

Ballasted Track And Non-Ballasted Track | Railway Track Comparison

The longitudinal creep resistance of the rail in one fastening system must exceed 7 kN to prevent excessive gap widening of the continuously welded rail in case of a rail fracture in winter. Imprint Data protection Disclaimer.

Innovative structures have to be structurally designed and tested intensively in the laboratory before they undergo trials.

Theory of track buckling Meier – critical rail temperature raise to against neutral temperature. Bi-block applications guarantee a safe and reliable bond between the sleeper and the infill concrete as well as easier handling. European Slab Track Symposium To counteract this phenomenon more resiliency has to be introduced in the ballasted track system.


The success of ballastless-track technology is primarily based on the following advantages: By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

TRAVERTEC: Ballastless Track Systems

Figure 5 demonstrates the effect of high resilient fastening systems on the vertical vibration velocity 3. It is well known from highway construction ballawtless jointed concrete pavements with increasing slab length and decreasing thickness tend to curl under temperature and moisture differentials, and often demonstrate pumping phenomena at joints.

As two common types of railroad track, ballasted track and non-ballasted track both have their merits. Passengers have always assessed riding comfort in a train by their individual impressions. Advantages High attenuation of vibrations: An advantage of systems with anchoring devices for the sleepers Figure 6 is an easy reconstruction of sleepers in the case of derailment or deterioration. Retrieved from ” https: Vertical vibration velocity in ballast aggregates for structures with different resilient fastenings.

Consequently in Korea, a frame shaped S. Millimetre-exact adjustment of the track system during assembly on the construction site is the prerequisite for great ride comfort in the train, and for reduction of loads experienced by the rolling stock. Track-system technology for the railway infrastructure of the twenty-first century.


Elastic mat under the slab. 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.

Issue Issue 3 This value has been met with nearly all S. Hence a fine cracking can be activated in a spacing of 0.

Ballastless track systems: top performance on a firm foundation

A decisive prospect of slab track is that the investment costs are not too high in comparison with the standard ballasted track.

Long-term experiences on the latter demonstrate that the load distributing effect of the rail can be optimised by a rail deflection of about 1. The following list contains construction types ballaxtless ballastless tracks that have been internationally used in heavy-rail systems as opposed to light railwaystramwaysor metros in chronological order of their first usage. The engineering design of this model guarantees a high degree of exactness in track gauge, as well as in overall track geometry.

Munich University of Technology. Track systems installed on asphalt supporting layers predominantly feature direct-support configurations:
