    This article belongs to the Special Issue Railway Track and Railway Structures
    Abstract: The reference data given in technical literature on the characteristics of spatial stiffness and elasticity of rail threads in the conditions of joint action on the rails of vertical and horizontal lateral forces and torsion are very different and in some cases contradictory. This situation is due to the lack of an accurate analytical solution to t... Show More
