Railroad Ballast (Rock): Specifications, Sizes, Background

Track ballast (usually crushed stone), as it is known, is another important part of railroad infrastructure. Although it may just look like plain ole gravel this stone plays a vital role in acting as a support base for the railroad ties and rails as well as allowing for proper …

This paper discusses the use of ground-penetrating radar (GPR) to assess railroad track substructure conditions. An ultra-wide band (UWB) GPR system, having a centre frequency at or higher than 2 GHz, can be used to detect the scattering pattern and to predict air void volume in railroad ballast. A time–frequency technique was implemented to characterise the signal in time and frequency ...

A narrow gauge mine railway in the Forest of Dean

 · Some good progress was made on Sunday 19th August as two panels of track (complete with ballast) were laid from the new set of points towards the inspection pit next to the container. The rail is of a heavier section than the usual 35lb/yd found on the rest of the railway — it matches the track on the line towards the container — so putting a slight curve into the second section using the ...

Tamping machine

A tamping machine or ballast tamper is a machine used to pack (or tamp) the track ballast under railway tracks to make the tracks more durable. Prior to the introduction of mechanical tampers, this task was done by manual labour with the help of beaters. As well as being faster, more accurate, more efficient and less labour-intensive, tamping ...

Under ballast mats. Installing Getzner under ballast mats achieves a high degree of track elasticity. Vibrations and structure-borne noise are effectively reduced and the ballast is protected – and what''s more: under ballast mats are easy to work with, can be installed quickly and can even be driven over by heavy construction equipment.

Ballast thickness normally ranges from 8 to 12-inches. A 6-inch-thick asphalt layer that is 12-feet wide requires 0.42 tons of asphalt per track foot. The asphalt layer should be extend a reasonable length beyond the ends of the special trackwork so that subsequent track surfacing operations and any impact from track stiffness changes will not infringe in the area.

DESIGN FOR RAILROAD BALLAST AND SUBGRADE SUPPORT

DESIGN FOR RAILROAD BALLAST AND SUBGRADE SUPPORT. It is noted that uniform contact pressure occurs at a depth of 2-2 1/2 times the cross-tie spacing, and that the point pressures are much greater at less than this depth. It has been found in some cases, that a lime modifier layer would be capable of taking tension and spread the load better.

Ballast

The effective thickness of the ballast is taken as the measure between the bottom edge of the sleeper and the formation protective layer of at least 30 cm. The ballast bed thickness must be so great that the pressure distribution lines of adjacent sleepers intersect over the subgrade otherwise the subsoil would be pressed up between the sleepers.
