Topics : South Korea’s parliament was shut down on Thursday and a group of lawmakers were in self-quarantine as the country recorded more than 400 new coronavirus infections.The South endured one of the worst early outbreaks of Covid-19 outside mainland China before bringing it broadly under control with extensive tracing and testing, but is now battling several clusters mostly linked to Protestant churches.Thursday’s 441 new cases were mostly in the greater Seoul area and are the latest in a series of near-six-month highs after several weeks with numbers generally in the 30s and 40s. Opposition parties also cancelled scheduled meetings. The photographer came in contact with around 50 people at the assembly on Wednesday, 32 of them party lawmakers and officials.The parliamentary shutdown is the second over coronavirus concerns, after a February closure when an attendee at an event tested positive.Thursday’s infection numbers were the 14th consecutive day of triple-digit increases and brought the country’s total to 18,706. The National Assembly was closed after a photojournalist who covered a ruling party meeting on Wednesday was later confirmed to have contracted Covid-19.The result prompted more than 10 top Democrats — including the party chairman and its parliamentary leader — to undergo tests and go into self-isolation.After the meeting the reporter learned that a relative he had met at the weekend had tested positive, and he then had himself tested.Officials on Wednesday held late-night talks on how to handle the situation and ordered all parliamentary activities suspended from Thursday, with both the assembly and a building housing lawmakers’ offices closed.
INTRO: Longitudinal precast concrete beams laid in stone ballast provide continuous support to the rails and reduced ground pressure for the same overall weight as conventional sleepersBYLINE: Dr Eng Hajime WakuiChief EngineerStructural Engineering GroupJapan Railway Technical Research InstituteFROM THE 1940s to the 1960s, experiments were carried out in France, Japan and the Soviet Union with longitudinal sleepers laid in parallel pairs under the rails. None was successful, and the idea was abandoned in favour of individual transverse concrete sleepers replacing wood. Twin-block concrete sleepers joined by a steel tiebar are also in common use.In 1993, the Structural Engineering Group of Japan’s Railway Technical Research Institute (RTRI) examined the reasons for the failure of longitudinal sleepers. It was concluded that these pioneering designs had not paid enough attention to maintaining the track gauge, and they required a greater weight of concrete than transverse sleepers. Nevertheless, it was considered that the basic principle of placing parallel pairs of sleepers directly beneath the rails was sound.Since then, ladder sleepers have been developed and tested in service. They were installed experimentally in February 1996 on a JR Freight line of 1067mm gauge after extensive tests at RTRI. The length of the experimental section is 100 m, and by June 1997 it had carried 20 million gross tonnes. Tests on a heavy haul version will start shortly at the Association of American Railroads’ Transportation Technology Centre near Pueblo in Colorado.Several designs for different types of track structure have been developed using ladder sleepers. While most will be laid in stone ballast, designs include track resting on a mortar, asphalt or concrete base suitable for viaducts or in tunnels. Patents for ladder track have been filed in a number of countries.Track can be tampedMany attempts have been made to produce concrete trackbeds which require little or no maintenance. While these have been successfully used on structures, notably on Shinkansen routes in Japan and on metros in tunnel, permanent way engineers have been reluctant to abandon stone ballast because of the ease with which the line and level can be adjusted by tamping to compensate for the settlement of earthworks.The fundamental difference between ladder sleepers and concrete trackbeds is that the former are designed to be laid in ballast and tamped by machine to maintain the required rail top level, and adjust the alignment if necessary. Obviously, the tamping heads have to be turned through 90°, but the sleepers are flexible enough to be lifted by a tamping machine and the principle is almost the same as for cross-sleepered track.Pressure exerted on the ballast is much less variable, and as a consequence the rate of settlement is far lower than that experienced with conventional sleepers. The sleeper and rail act together as a composite beam which to some extent bridges across weak spots in the formation. All this points to a big reduction in track maintenance costs.Design structureLadder sleepers are manufactured as two longitudinal concrete beams joined by transverse steel pipes which act as gauge ties. The finished product looks like a ladder laid on the ground – hence the name.The standard distance between two transverse pipes is 2·5m. The minimum unit length is 5m as obviously two pipes are necessary for structural and gauge stability. The maximum is 12·5m (five pipes) weighing about 4 tonnes, which is the most that can be conveniently handled at the work site.At 625mm intervals, pairs of shoulders for Pandrol clips are cast into the top of the sleeper. The rail can therefore be supported continuously, except for a short distance at the sleeper ends. In addition to the rail pad, a continuous ballast mat can be laid under the sleeper.The purpose in having different length units is to enable curved track to be laid. By using an adjustable insulated spacer between the Pandrol shoulder and the rail, or by using Pandrol shoulders on a moveable baseplate, a curve of 200 m radius can be laid using the 5m long units. The 12·5m units can be used on curves over 2 000 m radius.Because of its excellent crack resistance, pretensioned partially-prestressed concrete (PPC) was adopted for the longitudinal beams. Newly developed indented prestressing wires of three or five strands, which have very good adhesion to the concrete, are arranged close to the top and bottom surfaces where cracks are most likely to occur (photo p589). Stress transfer between the indented wires and the concrete relies solely on this bond.The dimensions of the longitudinal beam were mainly dictated by the need to incorporate the cast iron shoulders for the Pandrol clips within the cross-section, which is 400mm wide at the upper surface and 155mm deep under the rail seat (Fig 1).The width is increased on the inside by 30mm where the pipes used as ties enter the beam. These pipes are 76mm in diameter and 9mm thick. They are deformed at the ends to prevent them from rotating or being pulled out of the concrete.With the rail and sleeper acting as a continuous flexible beam, sleeper ends obviously become a weak point where differential movement has to be constrained.RTRI is currently developing a number of types of joint. The aim is to connect the longitudinal beams within a galvanised steel channel using sufficient through bolts to resist the shear forces. However, at intervals it will be necessary to allow longitudinal expansion and contraction of the sleepers to take place at the joints.Because of their configuration, ladder sleepers are highly resistant to track buckling in hot weather. However, they do not offer the same resistance to longitudinal creep as transverse sleepers. As experience shows this to be necessary, transverse steel plates which react against the ballast can be installed between the beams.Test resultsOne benefit of the ladder sleeper is the ability to bridge across weak spots in the subgrade where partial subsidence has occurred. The effect of unsupported gaps 1·8 and 3·6m long symmetrically under both beams and asymmetrically under one side beam was analysed. These calculations were used to determine the crack resistance and the ultimate capacity of the longitudinal beam as well as the diameter and thickness of the pipe.These are extreme cases, and serve to emphasise that ladder sleepers can enhance safety under conditions where the subgrade has partially collapsed, for example after a washout or earthquake.Drop-weight impact tests were performed to simulate the effect of wheel flats. These confirmed that ladder sleepers had been correctly designed to withstand such impacts.As regards ballast pressure, the much more even distribution achieved by ladder sleepers is well brought out by Fig 2. This shows the effect of a bogie exerting 80 kN static wheel load; maximum pressure immediately under the wheels is approximately halved, and the pressure gradient is much smoother.It is therefore no surprise that repetitive loading tests showed settlement rates to be about eight times less under the middle of ladder sleepers compared with conventional track (Fig 3). However, settlement is greater at the ladder sleeper ends, emphasising the need for more development in this area.Heavy haul possibilitiesRTRI has produced a new design for ladder sleepers scaled up for use on heavy haul lines with up to 40 tonne axleloads. A 1067mm gauge version has already been installed within the steel works of Sumitomo Metal Industries in Japan where the axleload is 30 tonnes. The 40 tonne standard gauge version has been installed in the High Tonnage Loop at the AAR’s Pueblo test centre in Colorado.On the new design, the beam width has been increased to 450mm. Rail fastenings are spaced at 750mm intervals, and as there are still four between each gauge tie, these are 3m apart. Sleepers are therefore manufactured in lengths of 6, 9 and 12m.Other track formsThe fact that the rail and sleeper are in continuous contact and act together as a composite beam means that a smaller rail section could support for the same axleload, especially where a heavy rail section such as 70 kg/m is used.The fact that rail is supported at intervals of about 700mm by transverse sleepers introduces vertical wheel motion at sleeper passing frequency, which can be a factor in generating corrugation and noise. Ladder sleepers should therefore reduce both noise and ground-borne vibration, especially when combined with resilient wheels.On viaducts and in tunnels where it is desirable to lay a concrete trackbed, ladder sleepers still offer advantages. They can either be laid on a resilient mat on the track bed, or as a floating track insulated from the trackbed by discrete resilient mountings (left). oCAPTION: A 12·5m long ladder sleeper panel placed on a levelled ballast bed; lifting rings are attached opposite the tubes forming the gauge tiesCAPTION: Tapered insulators with serrations are used to accommodate rail curvatureCAPTION: Arrangement of reinforcing and prestressing wires within a ladder sleeperCAPTION: Fig 1.

MLB hot stove: Padres, Bryce Harper reportedly set meeting The Nationals, Padres, Phillies and White Sox have all been revealed as potential destinations for Harper, though the remaining teams interested are unknown.The Athletic notes that sources with the Braves, Cardinals, Astros, Giants, Angels, Yankees and Blue Jays have confirmed Harper has been ruled out as a prospective signing. Bryce Harper has the attention of at least one-quarter of the majors.According to MLB Network, at least eight teams are still checking on the coveted outfielder, though several of those clubs have a short-term deal in mind. Harper and his agent, Scott Boras, have met with a number of teams in recent days, including second and third meetings with some. However, there’s no indication he’s close to reaching a deal.Harper previously met with the Phillies, White Sox and Dodgers, and reports last month indicated the Phillies are the “clear-cut favorite” to sign him. There’s also the possibility that he returns to the Nationals after meeting with team reps “multiple times” this offseason, even though he reportedly turned down a 10-year deal worth $300 million last year.A six-time All-Star, Harper has spent all seven of his MLB seasons in Washington.

Marcos Alonso celebrating after scoring against TottenhamLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Tottenham Hotspur made a losing start to life as Wembley’s full-time tenants after Marcos Alonso’s double earned Premier League champions Chelsea a 2-1 victory on Sunday.The Spaniard struck either side of a late Michy Batshuayi own goal to get Chelsea back to winning ways after their opening 3-2 loss at home to Burnley and end Spurs’ club-record run of 14 successive home wins.Spurs went unbeaten throughout their final league campaign at White Hart Lane, but struggled at Wembley in the Champions League and have now lost eight of the last 10 matches they have played there.Mauricio Pochettino’s men appeared to have avoided the worst when Batshuayi put through his own goal in the 82nd minute, only for Hugo Lloris’s feeble attempt at a save to gift Alonso the winner two minutes from time.For Spurs, who are playing at Wembley while White Hart Lane is rebuilt, it was a first home defeat in the league since a 2-1 loss to Southampton in May 2016.Having endured a deeply trying start to the season, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will hope victory over the team his side pipped to the title last season will bring some much-needed positivity back to Stamford Bridge.The Italian celebrated Alonso’s winner with characteristic abandon on the touchline, thoughts of his side’s transfer window struggles and his long stand-off with want-away striker Diego Costa seemingly banished.Chelsea’s list of absentees — suspended pair Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas, injury victim Eden Hazard and the exiled Costa — moved Conte to adopt an unfamiliar 3-5-1-1 system, with David Luiz anchoring the midfield.He also gave a debut to £40 million ($51.5 million, 43.8 million euros) new signing Tiemoue Bakayoko, who produced a leggy 90-minute showing in his first appearance since arriving from French champions Monaco.– Kane hits post – Alvaro Morata should have crowned his full Chelsea debut with an early goal, only to head wide from seven yards when Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross picked him out unmarked, but in the 24th minute his side did go ahead.Chelsea were awarded a free-kick after Dele Alli clipped Luiz and from a position 25 yards from goal, slightly to the right of centre, Alonso arced a magnificent shot into the top-right corner.Harry Kane, Alli and Mousa Dembele had all threatened for Spurs prior to Chelsea’s opener and after falling behind, they dominated the rest of the first half.Kane bent a shot against the base of the right-hand post after cutting inside Andreas Christensen from Alli’s pass, while Ben Davies saw a swerving effort from range clubbed away by the diving Thibaut Courtois.The hosts could count themselves unfortunate to be behind, but they were also a little lucky to keep 11 men on the field after Eric Dier and Jan Vertonghen escaped with yellow cards for ugly fouls on Luiz and Victor Moses.With Chelsea’s back three becoming more of a back five, they successfully held Spurs at bay in the second half and came close to adding a second goal when Willian’s low drive came skidding back off the post.Spurs thought they had rescued a point with eight minutes remaining when Batshuayi, who had only been on the pitch for four minutes, inadvertently headed Christian Eriksen’s free-kick into his own net.But six minutes later, Alonso picked up a loose ball in midfield and swapped passes with substitute Pedro before drilling a low shot beneath Lloris to give Chelsea victory.Share on: WhatsApp
