As a standard reference book for railway track engineers and practitioners, “Track Compendium” describes the physical properties of individual track components and their interrelationships clearly and concisely.

This second edition contains several additional sections on the following topics:

  • Equivalent conicity
  • Interaction of the vehicle with track geometry faults
  • Durability of wooden sleepers
