Grow your knowledge and appreciation of the performance of rail track systems, how they are engineered for functionality, capacity, safety and reliability by examining rail engineering principles, data, techniques and best practices. Key Learning Outcomes Analyse the principles, data and techniques applied to rail track design Discover how todays track systems are engineered and designed for functionality, capacity, safety, reliability, and competitiveness Gain a working knowledge of the performance of railway track systems in response to loadings Understand the critical relationships between track and rolling stock Gain insight into the implications of terminal design on efficient railway operations Learn to optimise the long-term benefit and economy from resources expended Gain insight into best practices through an examination of various track designs. About the Course: This course will examine the design and layout of rail track, including horizontal and vertical alignment, cross section, turnouts and crossings, component selection, earthwork, drainage, and clearances. The design approaches highlight applicable Australian standards and general industry practices. The participant will learn how traffic characteristics and operational requirements affect design. The coverage distinguishes between high-speed, conventional, rapid transit, and light-rail systems. The course includes exercises to provide experience with typical design procedures. On completion, the participant may take credit for 16 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours with their industry association (for example the Institute of Engineers Australia). An engineering or engineering technology background is preferred.
