Track ballast Wikipedia

OverviewConstructionMaintenanceQuantitiesSee alsoFootnotesFurther readingExternal links

The appropriate thickness of a layer of track ballast depends on the size and spacing of the ties, the amount of traffic on the line, and various other factors. Track ballast should never be laid down less than 150 mm (6 inches) thick, and high-speed railway lines may require ballast up to 0.5 metres (20 inches) thick. An insufficient depth of ballast causes overloading of the underlying soil, and in unfavourable conditions, overloading the soil causes the track to sink, usually unevenly.

How To Build A Railway Track 6 Steps With Pictures

Feb 10, 2017Ballast bed is the dependable foundation for railway track. According to the construction procedures, ballast bed construction is divided into two parts: bottom ballast and top ballast. There are other procedures between bottom ballast and top ballast laying. So, bottom ballast and top ballast will be separate to introduce.

Railroad Ballast, Types And Purpose

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 drainage of water away from the rails (which is why the stone is always sloped downward and away from track).

Ballasted Track And Non-Ballasted Track Railway Track

Ballasted TrackNon-Ballasted TrackApplicationBallasted track is a type of traditional railway tracks. Ballasted track is commonly composed of steel rail, railroad tie, railway fasteners and ballast bed. Theoretically, ballasted track is the creation of railway track development. In 1865, the basic structure of the modern track structure was completed. Generally, laying ballast under the railway sleepersto reduce the stress on the ground.
