:: Superstructure Laboratory ::

  Superstructure Laboratory

The experiments dealing with the mechanical and physical properties of the track components such as fasteners, pads,… are performed in this laboratory. The geometrical parameters of track can also be measured by portable devices. A set of some commonly used machines used during the construction or maintenance of the railroad superstructure and also a welding apparatus (thermit method) are located for educational purposes.

 

  Laboratory Apparatus:

  The brief description of the laboratory apparatus are as follows:

 

  1- Railway track test rig

  It measures the geometrical parameters of tracks such as gauge, grade, torsion, super elevation,… .

   2- Joint Gap Recorder

  It measures the joint gaps (the gaps between the rails) and the temperature of rails using sensors and a spot thermometer respectively.

  3- Mini-Prof Apparatus

  The apparatus is used to measure and calculate the wear of rails, wheels, brakes and switches profiles.

  4-Single tie push test (STPT)

  Equipped with a compressive jack and a data logger, the lateral resistance of sleepers can be measured.

8- Rail fastening system cyclic test

In this test, numerous cyclic loads are applied on rail fastening system then fatigue strength and plastic deformation of fastening system are measured.

9- Sleeper loading test

In this test, loads are applied on rail seat and mid-span of sleeper. Maximum load that sleeper can be sustained is measured.

10- Shaking table test

  In this test, shaking of structure due to earthquake is simulated.

11- Large rigid steel frame

This frame is used as a reaction frame in different tests such as plate load test (PLT). The frame can sustain intensive cyclic and monotonic loads without any damage and notable deflection.
