Guideline for application of new technologies to extend life of elderly rail infrastructure: Deliverable 1.4 in MAINLINE - a project within EC 7tf Framework Programme
2015 (English)Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
There are many traditional technologies available to extend the life of elderly rail infrastructure, some of which are being improved or developed, whilst new technologiescontinue to emerge. In this guideline some of the most promising new or updated technologies are presented forbridges, track and earthwork regarding: - Assessment methods- Repair and Strengthening methodsIn an Appendix strengthening methods are presented in more detail with examples of designcalculations and work carried out.The guideline is based on work presented in earlier reports in MAINLINE: ML-D1.1 (2013):Benchmark of new technologies to extend the life of elderly rail infrastructure, ML-D1.2(2013): Assessment methods for elderly rail infrastructure and ML-D1.3 (2014): Newtechnologies to extend the life of elderly infrastructure; In these reports, backgroundinformation and more references can also be found.
