Railway applications - Track - Test methods for fastening systems - Part 3: Determination of attenuation of impact loads

Status: Valid

This European Standard specifies laboratory test procedures for applying an impact to a rail fastened to a concrete sleeper or bearer which simulates the impact loading caused by traffic on railway tracks and measuring the strain induced in the sleeper. They are used for comparing the attenuation of impact loads on concrete sleepers or bearers by different rail pads. A reference procedure and alternative procedure are included.
