"In this thesis, practices/procedures adopted by different railways to manage track stability have been collated and a gap analysis has been undertaken to help improve track stability. The analysis revealed that track stability management differs markedly/noticeably between railway companies, and that there is a need for a unified tool to determine the requirements of different preventive maintenance programs"--Abstract.
