Test: Maintenance, Curvature of Track & Creep - Question 1

Which one of the following relates to the percussion theory for explaining the cause of creep?

Test: Maintenance, Curvature of Track & Creep - Question 2

Creep is the

Test: Maintenance, Curvature of Track & Creep - Question 3

Study the following statements regarding creep.
(i) Creep is greater on curves than on tangent railway track.
(ii) Creep in new rails is more than that in old rails.
(iii) Creep is more on steep gradients than on level track.

The correct answer is

Test: Maintenance, Curvature of Track & Creep - Question 4

The maximum degree of curvature for Metre Gauge is limited to

Detailed Solution for Test: Maintenance, Curvature of Track & Creep - Question 4

The maximum degree of curvature for Metre Gauge railways is limited to: 

       2. 16°

This is a standard specification in railway engineering to ensure the safe operation of trains on metre gauge tracks, allowing for appropriate speed and stability on curves.

Test: Maintenance, Curvature of Track & Creep - Question 5

Cant deficiency occurs when a vehicle travels around a curve at

Detailed Solution for Test: Maintenance, Curvature of Track & Creep - Question 5

Cant deficiency is the difference, between the equilibrium cant necessary for maximum permissible speed on a curve and actual cant provided. So if a vehicle travels at a speed higher than the equilibrium speed, cant deficiency occurs whereas if a vehicle travels at a speed lower than equilibrium speed, cant excess occurs.

Test: Maintenance, Curvature of Track & Creep - Question 6

The compensation for curvature on gradient for Metre Gauge is given by

Test: Maintenance, Curvature of Track & Creep - Question 7

The shape of transition curve used by Indian railways is

Test: Maintenance, Curvature of Track & Creep - Question 8

One degree of curve is equivalent to Where R is the radius of curve in metres.

Test: Maintenance, Curvature of Track & Creep - Question 9

What will be the curve lead for a 1 in 8.5 turnout taking off from a straight broad gauge track?

Detailed Solution for Test: Maintenance, Curvature of Track & Creep - Question 9

Approximate value of curve lead
= 2 x number of crossing x gauge
= 2 x 8.5 x 1.676 = 28.49 m

Test: Maintenance, Curvature of Track & Creep - Question 10

On a single rail track, goods trains loaded with heavy iron material run starting from A to B and then empty wagons run from B to A The amount of creep in the rails
