The alignment design is very important, while there are few course books to introduce it. Inorder to satisfy the requirements of railway engineering education for international students inChina, based on the book edited by Miao Kun, Wang Baochen in May 2021, combined with thelatest development of China's railway, the book is compiled. The contents of this book include therailway capacity and construction standards, traction calculation, horizontal and verticalalignments, railway alignment design, alternative comparison.
After reading this book, the students will study: how the major technical standards affect therailway construction and operation and how to make decision of it. They will also learn themethod to select a good railway corridor and design a satisfactory alignment coordinated with thestations, bridges, tunnels, etc.
