Therefore, it is imperative to investigate in detail the deformation behaviour and degradation characteristics of ‘fresh’ ballast for typical loading and drainage conditions specific to railway tracks. Also, it is necessary to identify the factors that highly affect their variation.

Deformation characteristics of fresh and fouled ballasts ...

2016-8-1  In ballasted railway tracks, ballast fouling occurs when the finer materials (i.e., the materials smaller than fresh ballast) mix with fresh ballasts due to heavy repeated train loads. It is expected that fresh or clean ballast is used in the construction of a railway track with the fouling components not exceeding 2% (Indraratna and Salim, 2005).

Railroad Ballast (Rock): Specifications, Sizes, Background

According to Brian Solomon's book Railway Maintenance, The Men and Machines That Keep the Railroads Running, today the typical layout for a well-ballasted railroad track system is stone lined to the top of the railroad ties protruding roughly 14 inches to either side. From this point the rock is tapered away on a "3-to-1" slope to an eventual distance of 9 feet, 10 inches from the center-of ...

Rail Track Ballast Tarmac

Rail track ballast serves as a bed for rail tracks and provides drainage and strength for heavy loads carried by trains. Ballast is the description for the aggregate beneath the rail track. The track ballast forms the track bed that suports the rail track load and provides water drainage. Rail ballast aggregate is typically 30-50mm aggretate.

Track ballast forms the trackbeb upon which railroad ties are laid. It is used to bear the load from the railroad ties, to facilitate water drainage, and also to keep down vegetation. It is typically made of angular crushed stone, with a grain size between 30 and 60 mm, with good mechanical properties (high compressive strength, freeze - thaw resistance, resistance to fragmentation).
