Abstract
A series of numerical simulations is used to explore the effect of the geometrical disposition of impermeable membranes in the overall performance of slab-track railway earthworks, with particular reference to the generation of settlement during several years of exposure to the atmosphere and the admissibility of these post-construction deformations according to the available standards. A methodology suitable to account for the effects of rail traffic loading and environmental actions over its s...
