Ballast performs an important position in transmitting and allotting educate wheel quite a bit to the underlying sub-ballast and subgrade. Bearing ability of song, educate pace, using caliber and passenger convenience all rely on the soundness of ballast via mechanical interlocking of debris. Ballast attrition and breakage ensue steadily less than heavy cyclic loading, inflicting song deterioration and rail misalignment―affecting safeguard and important widespread and expensive music upkeep.

At the undergraduate level students have studied linear elastic, fluid and gas behavior. But the topics generally are taught in separate courses, and often the common, underlying theory is not noticed. Also, the methods used to determine the relationship between stress and strain are not considered. Continuum Theory 3 So continuum mechanics is not a new or challenging topic. Rather it is a chance to start over and put all that was studied previously under a single umbrella. A course in continuum mechanics is a chance to synthesize what was learned during an undergraduate education into a coherent structure.

(b) Rectangular Cartesian components of the vector v. 1 Base vectors and components of a Cartesian vector. This vector and its coordinate components are pictured in Fig. 1(b). For the symbolic description, vectors will usually be given by lower-case Latin letters in bold-faced print, with the vector magnitude denoted by the same letter. Thus v is the magnitude of v.
