Factual report short term measurement 2008

More Info


This report gives an overview of the extensive short term measurements undertaken for the Delft Cluster project Railway transition zones. The objective of the project was to measure the response of the railway track and ground, at a transition zone' during the passage of regular service trains. Both Deltares and the University of Southampton performed measurements at the Gouda Goverwelle (GoGo) site. Both institutes have large amounts of measured data available for the project. Secondly, additional data is provided by Dutch railway operators. In order to make sure that data can be shared without problems it is essential that all data is properly documented. To ensure a problem free exchange of measurements and data, they are not only summarized in this report but they are given proper names as well. This way there will be less chance of misunderstandings between the two institutes when discussing measurement data.
