For most earthworks, the mass of the structure itself will be at least an order of magnitude greater than that of the trains that pass over them. Earthworks will therefore stress the ground on which they stand, or through which they are cut. Passing trains may in practice cause no extra stressing of the ground. Good design and construction preparation are therefore important to prevent overstressing above the bearing capacity of the soil. 7 Fatigue in railway infrastructure Failure Regular inspections, especially in wet weather, to identify drainage problems, and prompt maintenance or repair are the most cost-effective ways of preventing catastrophic failures, which mean lines having to be shut so that the earth structures can be rebuilt.

Fatigue in railway and tramway track 31 and become permanent, and then require complete rail replacement. While this is not a safety matter per se, it is a fatigue failure mode with cost and comfort issues. 3 Side wear Straight tracks, or curves with large radii (over 500 m), and well-maintained rolling stock result in minimal side wear of rails. The wear of the railhead will dictate rail replacement periods. The fact that rarely will all rail vehicles be maintained in perfect condition means that straight tracks can suffer premature side wear due to bogie hunting and four-wheel vehicles crabbing, with wheels not parallel but angled across the rails.

30). There are different design philosophies to this. In Europe until recently such turnouts had only one tongued switch, on the outer rail, with the inner switch being open. In North America the single moving switch tongue is usually on the inner rail, guiding and grinding the back of tramcar wheels. Practice in new UK light rail systems has been to mimic mainline railways with two tongued switches. The life of crossings and failure rates depend on whether wheels are supported on their flanges over the crossing, or use the railway practice of tyre running.
