Practical Railway Engineering Second Version by Clifford F. Bonnett

PREFACEThe necessity for this textbook arose initially in 1994 out of the writer’s expertise while co-ordinating the elective topic ‘Railway Engineering Ideas’ for the Intercollegiate MSc Course in Transport run collectively by Imperial School and College School, London College. The acknowledged goal of this elective topic is: ‘To develop an understanding of the engineering ideas concerned, for all disciplines, within the planning, design, building, equipping, upkeep and renewal of all varieties of railway.’ The writer shortly found that there have been many textbooks which gave detailed info on varied elements of railway engineering, normally confined to at least one or two most important disciples, however none that offered a normal ‘broad brush’ strategy to the topic as an entire. The primary version of this textbook was printed in 1996 and was particularly designed to fill this hole, not just for the scholar on this or comparable programs, but additionally to be a helpful reference e-book to all who must broaden their information on this huge area.

The primary version was adopted as a typical textbook by a lot of Universities and Schools. Though the essential rules of such a topic don’t change over time, among the particulars of the e-book wanted up-dating and this has been the writer’s goal in producing the second version. The writer needs to acknowledge intensive assist he has acquired from many training engineers and, specifically, those that usually have contributed lectures on this topic to college students on the London College course. As well as thanks are recorded for feedback acquired on the primary version which have been taken into consideration in producing the second version. One of many most important modifications within the second version is the advance of the illustrations and the introduction of some color prints, made potential by the publishers, which is far appreciated.
