For taking the consideration of creep of rails the sleepers that need no anchoring arrangement
Concrete sleepers are heavy in weight due to their self weight and thus, the need no anchoring.
Which of the following incorrectly represents the function of sleepers in the layout of railway tracks?
Metal sleepers are superior to wooden sleepers with respect to
Which of the following types of sleepers is preferred on joints?
Minimum depth of ballast cushion for a Board Gauge wooden sleeper of size 275 x 25 x 13 cm with 75 cm sleeper spacing is
Minimum depth of ballast cushion D in terms of sleeper spacing S and width of sleeper W is given by the equation,
Sleeper density in India is normally kept as
Where M is the rail length in metres.
For a Broad Gauge route with M+7 sleeper density, number of sleepers per rail length is
Length of one rail in broad gauge is equal to 13 m
Therefore, M+7 means that 13+7=20 sleepers will be used per rail on that route.
Standard size of wooden sleeper for Broad gauge track is
