Continuous measurement of track stiffness using a rolling load
Vymětal A., Turek J.
pages 390 - +7p., full text

The paper contains the preliminary results of the grant project "Non-homogeneities of railway track as an aspect of track quality". The special device for measuring the vertical track stiffness was designed and built by the modification of an older tamping machine. The description of the measuring in the track to be carried out by this device in 2000-2002 is given in the form of graphs and tables. One chapter is devoted to the numerical method for track stiffness computation. This method was applied on the measured data of the rail deflection under a moving load. The criterion for track quality assessment was offered on the basis of test results.
