    Links Geotechnics with Railway Track Engineering and Railway Operation

    Good railway track and railway operations depend on good geotechnics, in several different ways and at varying levels.

    Railway Geotechnics covers track, track substructure, load environment, materials, mechanics, design, construction, measurements, and management. Illustrated by case studies, with an emphasis on the geotechnical aspects of railway engineering, it discusses these topics from a historical perspective. It also presents the methodologies and best practices developed over the past 20 years.
