Abstract: This paper presents a comparative analysis of simulation processes of seasonal freezing-thawing of railway subgrade and permafrost degradation, with and without accounting for solar radiation. Also, the effect of sun screens to reduce the degradation of subgrade permafrost under different climatic conditions is numerically substantiated. And finally, the temperature criterion of the origination of permafrost is illustrated.

Abstract. This article considers the main issues of developing standards of laying continuous welded rail on bridges with ballast roadway. There is a review of existing approaches to the development of norms, defined their scope. Describes the results of experiments on the interaction of continuous welded rail lashes and the bridge floor. Developed a refined method of calculation of longitudinal forces in continuous welded rail the whips and developed a practical method of its application.
