Railway technology & engineering
Railway Track Engineering presents conventional methods of track construction, maintenance and monitoring, along with modern sophisticated track machines. It also comprehensively covers design details and specifications of important track components.
Changes in the revised edition include:
Explanation of the hitherto little understood phenomenon of rolling contact fatigue in rails and practical steps to deal with it.
New technology of alumino-thermic rail welding.
New guidelines for ultrasonic rail flaw detection.
Ballastless track for metros, mainlines and washable aprons.
Track standards for ultra high-speed lines in India.
Track structure for Dedicated Freight Corridors.
Technology of fully mechanized track construction with the deployment of simple track laying equipment to highly sophisticated track-laying trains.
Richly illustrated with photographs and line drawings, this book will be useful to professionals and students. TABLE OF CONTENTS
