Vol. 13 No. 1 (2013): Special Issue: Advances in Rail Track Infrastructure Research and Practice (ARTIR)-2013
Overall, eight articles are featured in this special issue, representing analytical and numerical modeling, laboratory experimentation, together with actual field trials under revenue services. Topics include rails, rail joints, composite and concrete sleepers, track dynamics, ballasted vs. ballastless tracks, and railway bridge approaches. This collection of articles will hopefully stimulate much further research and practical activities.
