The Railway Track Structures Research Team consists of about 10 researchers. The research area includes track components from subsoil stability through the structural layers to sleepers, rails and wheel-rail contact. Essential parts of the research area are also bridges and the life cycle and monitoring of track structures.

21st Nordic Seminar on Railway Technology will take place on 9-10 June 2020 in Tampere, Finland. More information can be found on seminar´s website:


The main emphasis of activity is experimental research based on diverse arrangements from laboratory scale material analyses to field measurements and full-scale loading tests. Research methods are complemented by calculational analyses of performance of structures and literature reviews of international research results.
