Introduction to Railroad Track Structural Design Don Uzarski, Ph. D.P. E. AREMA, Manual for Railway Engineering, Chapter 16, 2000. 31 Some railroads use different track modulus (u) values in design. For example, Spring Manual Arema Technology Railway Railway engineers fieldbook and explorers guide; especially adapted to the use of railroad engineers on location and construction, and to the needs of the xplorer in making exploratory surveys.
THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF RAILROAD OVERPASSES AND UNDERPASSES MAY 2008. (AREMA) Manual for Railway Engineering. Guidelines for the Design and Construction of Railroad Overpasses and Underpasses 5 structure shall be designed for E80 load to accommodate any future track needs or top of rail, and is commonly referred to in this document as track structure. This Chapter is organized in several main sections, namely track structure and their materials including civil engineering, track geometry design, and special trackwork.
Students AREMA supports those pursuing college level courses of study related to the engineering andor technical aspects of the railway industry through student membership, scholarship opportunities and involvement in student chapters at several universities across the United States and Canada.

AREMA Manual provides for design of railroad structures using Allowable Stress Design (ASD) and Load Factor Design (LFD) methods. The Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) method is currently not used.
