Railway Bridges, Tunnels & Soundproof Walls
For the checking of structural analysis of railway bridges constructed from reinforced concrete and pre-stressed concrete, our team includes three accredited experts of the German Federal Railway Authority (“Eisenbahn-Bundesamt”, EBA). Furthermore, there is significant demand for our expertise in connection with specific railway-related issues such as the dynamics and fatigue behaviour of railway bridges or the prediction of potential stress cracks in prestressing steel tendons as part of older pre-stressed concrete structures. Our advice is likewise sought concerning questions about ballastless tracks on bridges, e.g. designing rail fastening elements and rail stresses. Our engineers were decisively involved in the preparation of railway guidelines.
