Course Description

Metro Rail network is expanding at a rapid pace around the world. Metro railways are undoubtedly the preferred mode for mass transport on high demand corridors in big and medium cities and lead to making growing cities more livable and sustainable. With the creation of new metro facilities in several cities  and in view of capital intensive nature of the metro rail projects, there is a need for standardization of metro rail systems. This course is dedicated to improving participants’ practical knowledge in order to advance the railroad engineering industry.

Course Objectives

  • Understanding track-structure interaction
