    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for design, manufacture and installation of prestressed concrete sleepers, for use in railway track. Test methods are given in appendices, including sleeper bending, electrical short and repeated load tests. Information is also given on the background of the design methods, design of special sleepers and dynamic considerations. Reference is made to AS 1085.19 for requirements for resilient fastenings.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out requirements for the design, manufacture, testing and installation of prestressed concrete sleepers and their fastening components for use in main line railway systems. It also sets out requirements for electrical performance of rail fastener and sleeper combinations. This Standard also covers special sleepers such as turnout bearers, sleepers with additional rails and dual gauge sleepers and their fastenings for use in special sleepered track (See Appendix A). This Standard does not cover— (a) the design of post-tensioned concrete sleepers; (b) the design of duo block concrete sleepers; and (c) the techniques and equipment for the manufacture of concrete sleepers or fastenings. NOTES: 1 Guidance on information that should be supplied by the purchaser is given in Appendix B. 2 Guidance on means for demonstrating compliance with this Standard is given in Appendix C.
