Abstract: The horizontal load-carrying capacity of fasteners in concrete railway sleepers is investigated. Tests are performed on un-cracked as well as cracked concrete sleepers.
Small cracks do not seem to influence the load-carrying capacity and it is first when cracking is very severe that the load-carrying capacity is reduced significantly.
