Development of advanced prefabricated urban slab track systems

This project is interested in the major problems of induced ground vibrations and acoustic noise. The research project also considers other important needs such as the demand of overall system performances improvement in terms of reliability, durability, maintenability and the necessity of enhancing the manufacture process both in factory and in situ by producing and by laying prefabricated concrete products. In this regard the state of the art at the start of this project in the field of railway track systems showed the potential optimal solution to be the employment of prefabricated slab tracks, possible with other components and devices integrated in order to provide the requested performances. The project, which will have been developed through real needs specification, design methodologies implementation, specimens construction and experimental tests, has been made for the design of better cost effective track ssytems and thus have a significant economic impact on the basis of a real industrial need both for new railways and fro renewals.
