Sanudo, R(extern); Miranda, M.; Markine, V.L.; Dell'olio, L.; (2016)

Different types of track infrastructure can be found along railway lines. Separation zones between these different types of structures are the source of a lot of problems. Transition zones on a railway line represent a gradual solution for the problems between conventio... View more
