“…of particular interest is the fact that this book, owing to its theoretical analysis as well as the results of measurements both in the laboratory and on the railway track, contains information emanating from research conducted, inter alia, by the Hellenic Railways Organization (OSE) and Greek Universities.

It all began with the appearance of cracks on concrete sleepers that were placed along the Hellenic network and the subsequent decision that technical know-how had to be acquired in Greece as well, as described in detail in the introduction.

The research was conducted in cooperation with the Reinforced Concrete Laboratory and the Railway Department of the NTUA, the Geotechnical Engineering sector of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the research sector «Track» («Voie») of the SNCF, and it lasted -including data processing- until the end of 1993.

Concluding, it is worth mentioning that today OSE is proceeding towards the investigation and implementation of the most advanced technologies (slab track) on matters of civil engineering in Railways, after the publishing in the ETR, as previously mentioned, of the results of the experimental research – in the lab and on track – conducted on behalf of the German Railways (DB), which confirms also in practice the results of the theoretical analysis of the scientific personnel of OSE…»
