Temperature Field Analysis on CA Mortar Ballastless Track of High-Speed Railway


Article Preview

As an important cushion layer, CA mortar ballastless track is crucial to the durability, safety of high-speed railway and the high-speed railway is influenced by the external environment. The regulation of temperature field evolvement of ballastless track is analyzed in this paper through a two-dimensional, transient finite element model built by ANSYS. The results show that the temperature of structure section caused by solar radiation and circumstances temperature is decreasing along depth in sunlight, and the internal temperature of structure is higher than the surface temperature at night. The integral temperature field of structure reaches the maximum at 1:00 p.m. and the vertical difference of the temperature inside the structure is also the largest, causing the most obvious temperature stress, which provides theoretical data for systematic research on ballastless track of high-speed railway.
