Prediction on Red Clay Foundation Settlement of Ballastless Track of High-Speed Railway


Article Preview

Prediction on red clay foundation settlement was put forward, using hyperbola method, exponential curve method and Hushino method, based on field data. Furthermore, Verhulst model, Gompertz model, Logistic model and Weibull curve were adopted in foundation settlement prediction. Subsequently, variable weight combination method and optimized combination model was studied to get more accurate prediction results. Finally, red clay foundation prediction of high speed railway was proposed.
