“…It should be pointed out that depending on the direction of the train, the transition may take place from a softer to a stiffer section (when entering the structure) or from a stiffer to a softer track section (when leaving the structure). The effect of train direction on the performance of stiffness transitions has already been studied by several authors such as [2,15]. In this investigation, both types of transitions have been considered and their vibratory response is shown in Fig.…”

“…According to [1,2], the most common issues in transition zones (e.g., safety, passenger comfort, and maintenance expense problems) generally arise from differential settlements between adjacent cross-sections of track. Furthermore, such elevation change induces a vertical acceleration of the vehicle mass, which generates an increase in the wheel-rail interaction forces [3].…”

“…A novel approach to anticipating poor track performance was presented by Paixao et al, 10 in terms of derailment risk, track degradation, and passengers comfort, at critical locations of railway lines, such as transition zones and other discontinuities, including local irregularities, which could provide crucial information for railway infrastructure managers. As a conclusion, San˜udo et al 11 summarized the main problems and alternative solutions for TTSs in their review work. Although the above studies have proposed many valuable suggestions on optimizing the design and reducing the vibration of TTSs, few scholars paid attention to the dynamic behaviors of fasteners in TTS, which should be carefully concerned to ensure the operation safety.…”
