“…Research from Greek railways found that the use of stiff rail pads increased stresses on the sleepers, causing them to crack. Their results also show that replacing stiff rail pads (250 kN/mm) with more flexible ones (40 kN/mm) reduced the stresses transmitted to the sleepers by up to 20% with a ballasted track (Miguel Sol-Sánchez, 2015).…”

“…In addition, the elastic rail pad provides electrical and signaling insulation (between track circuits) and is a good source of damping that reduces transmission of rail vibrations to sleepers. This also reduces cracking and wear rates of concrete sleepers and abutments (Miguel Sol-Sánchez, 2015).…”

“…Currently, high-speed railways are based on the use of concrete sleepers and complex fastening systems between the sleeper and the rails. Aiming at relieving the excessive stiffness of concrete sleepers (which can be up to five times higher than those made of wood [1]), elastic pads are placed between the rails and the sleepers. Rail pads play an indispensable role within the fastening systems since they cushion the shocks and vibrations caused by the train wheels transit.…”
