Rehabilitating West Point's Tunnel
Conrail, the Northeast's largest freight railway, had a problem with a tunnel carrying the fastest freight line between the New York area and the Pacific. The 1882 tunnel...

Fatigue Strength of Corroded Rolled Beams
Highway and railway bridges fabricated from ASTM A7, A36, and A572 steels will corrode if the paint system is allowed to fail for lack of maintenance. Corroding members lose cross section...

A Method of Computing Impact and Fatigue Life in the Railway Steel Girder Bridge
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the dynamic interactions between an steel girder bridge and a moving freight train. A non-linear, 100-ton, freight car vehicle model and a 70-ft...

Fatigue Evaluation of a Riveted Railroad Bridge
An 83 year old railroad bridge was analyzed for fatigue based on historical records such as the original schedules. Based on the number of cycles to date, corresponding to an effective...

Ballasted Single Ply Design Guide Development
A new roofing concept called ballasted single ply has now captured about 25% of the new and retrofit flat roof market. This concept relies on the use of ballast to provide the wind resistance...

Development of Intermodal Container Rail Terminals

Top Projects for 1989
Transportation-related projects, most notably bridges, dominate the 1989 OCEA projects, but each of the 11 improved the quality of life of people in the community without harming the environment....

Proposed West Midtown Transit Link, New York City

Integration of APM Systems With Florida High Speed Rail

Hot Mix Asphalt Utilization in Railway Trackbeds
Described herein are the rationales for, descriptions of and evaluations of hot-mix asphalt (HMA) trackbed rehabilitation and construction techniques recently utilized in various classes...

Fast Track, Instant Track
There is a newly constructed railroad bridge over the Wilamette River in Portland, Oregon. The 499 ft. clear maritime channel allows the world's largest ships to navigate...

Historic American engineering projects sampled in this article represent those documented in Landmarks in Civil Engineering, by Daniel L. Schodek,...

Composite Bridges for High Speed Trains

Composite Road and Railway Bridges in Germany

Stochastic Finite Element Analysis of Railroad Tracks
The loads acting on railroad tracks due to the passage of trains and the resisting track parameters have a random character. The purpose of this study is to incorporate the random parameters...

Skytrain Crosses the River
The cable stayed bridge that will carry Vancouver's light rail line across the Fraser River is the world's longest such bridge built solely for mass transit....

Rehabilitation of Terminal Ballast Water Piping
In order to maintain the integrity of the ballast water piping system at the Marine Terminal of the trans-Alaska pipeline, a composite lining system was installed in the 42-inch (1,067...

Rehabbing the Underground Railroad
The Park Ave. Railroad Tunnel brings three commuter rail lines into New York City's Grand Central Station. The four tracks occupy three tubes from 97th St. to 57th St., where...
