Aceituno, Javier F.

|The objective of this article is to present the design and manufacture of a scaled railroad track to be used as a laboratory track for the study of different railway applications. It could be a guideline for future laboratory railroad tracks. The ideal concept was based on possible future studies and, according to them, design requirements have been specified. The main characteristic of the track is that its geometry can be mechanically modified and irregularities can be introduced under controlled conditions in any kind of track sections: straight, curved and transition ones. Finally, the current installed track is shown and the performed quality controls are described.
