[STRUCTURE]     How is the varying longitudinal stiffness of ballast/concrete bed considered for rail track analysis?

For Rail Track Analysis, Multi linear elastic links are used to simulate the bilinear curve of longitudinal stiffness for loaded and unloaded
conditions of ballast/concrete bed connecting rail and superstructure




The multi-linear link data is available under “MEInk” Tab, in the table of
Elastic link data.
