Summary

The construction of high-speed railways includes a wide variety of aspects, ranging from safety to new types of equipment and construction solutions. All these require state-of-art technologies, and in recent years design concepts for high-speed railways have improved. 

The focus in this volume is on the interaction between rail track and bridges. Track-bridge interaction sets a limit to the vibration and deformability of structures, so that accelerations, stresses and track deformations are controlled, circulation safety is satisfied, and design solutions for bridges are determined. 

Track-Bridge Interaction on High-Speed Railways presents the latest research on the interaction between rail track and bridges, and will be invaluable to civil engineers involved in the design, construction and maintenance of high-speed railways and bridges, and to researchers and graduate and undergraduate engineering students with an interest in this field.
