The railroad system serves many purposes in the transportation industry. Railroads are used throughout the country as a means of transporting people and goods. Railroads transcend several states and or jurisdictions, and in order to keep the system working seamlessly a universal standard has been developed to be used by all jurisdictions.
This course will define the minimum required standards for railroad tracks. Several maintenance and inspections processes will be discussed in length in order to maintain a safe and effective railroad system.
This 4 hour course will examine the use of Railroad Track Standards. It will provide useful information to determine when railroad tracks require maintenance or even temporary periods of no service.
This course is to read by anyone with an interest in Railroad engineering, transportation engineering, geotechnical engineering, hydraulics, or anyone wanting to know more information regarding Railroad Track Standards Design. After reading this course the student will know basic information regarding Railroad Track Standards.
The course materials are based solely on the engineer manual “Railroad Track Standards” as found on the website of the Army Corps of engineers.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
