The Minimum Longitudinal Horizontal Linear-Stiffness of Piers of Typical High-Speed Railway’s Layout of Turnout and Bridge
The values of longitudinal horizontal linear-stiffness of piers are very important parameters in the design of welded turnout on bridge and they can have a great impact on the force and displacement of the turnout. The layout form of turnout and bridge of welded turnout structure system on high-speed railway bridges are various, so the values of longitudinal horizontal linear-stiffness of piers have to be limited in order to insure the strength and stability of track structure on bridges and at the same time meet the requirement of comparative displacement of beam and rail, turnout proper and frog. To make the value-taking easy in the design process, a finite element model for welded turnout-bridge-platform is established in this paper, which is based on the principle of longitudinal interaction of welded turnout on bridges. Directing at three typical layout forms (No.18 single turnout+4×32m continuous beam, single crossover+6×32m continuous beam and typical throat point+4×32m continuous beam) of welded turnout and bridge on ballast track, a research of the relation between the force and displacement of turnout, and the values of longitudinal horizontal linear-stiffness of piers has been carried out. Based on the comprehensive analysis, minimal values of longitudinal horizontal linear-stiffness of piers which are suitable for these three kinds of layout forms, and the values are 1000,800 and 1600 kN/cm·double-line respectively.
