Recently, the development of the paved track is required as a low-maintenance of conventional line. The main reason is that the line capacity and bearing of track are increased progressively. The important factors of paved track are stability and applicability. To be based on this subject, Cement Mortar Pouring(CMP) paved track is developed. CMP paved track is a kind of ballast reinforced track using the prepacked concrete technique. The most important thing to design the paved track is to optimize the track structure considering various conditions. Because construction environment is very limited, cost is expensive and it has very complicated behavior. On this paper, structural characteristics of the paved track are investigated using the 3D finite element analysis to verify the optimized structure of the CMP track.
