A few words about

The Department of Railway Structures provides complex instruction in the design, construction, reconstruction and maintenance of railway structures, i.e. railway tracks, stations and junctions, tram and underground railway tracks.

In its research activities, the department is engaged in long-term investigations of the issues of the design and load-bearing capacity of the railway superstructure and the substructure of railway tracks, tram and underground tracks. Special emphasis is placed on the research and testing of new railway constructions and materials for both the substructure and the superstructure (such as geosynthetics, antivibration mats, under-sleeper pads, recycled materials) in laboratory conditions and their verification in working conditions. The department also investigates environmental aspects of railway transport, including the measurement of traffic noise exposure.

The department systematically cooperates with external specialists on specialized research and development tasks for practical implementations. It offers consultations and advisory services to external clients.
