Placing and grading ballast stone on a TriAx Stabilized trackbed
SpectraRail TM Software provides geotechnical engineers the
most powerful tool available for evaluating design options
and optimizing railway systems using Tensar® Geogrids.
Developed specifically for Tensar’s Spectra® Rail Railway
Improvement System, SpectraRail Software enables users to:
Evaluate and compare designs for both unstabilized and
mechanically stabilized rail roadbeds with comprehensive
cost analysis for each alternative
Estimate track settlement for a specific level of
SpectraRail Software is a comprehensive, systems-based
software suite that offers the full benefits of Tensar’s
knowledge and experience in analyzing both sub-ballast
stabilization and ballast optimization applications. These
applications incorporate Tensar® TriAx® Geogrids, key
components of the Spectra® Rail System (Images E and F).
This software is available free of charge following the
completion of a free training module delivered by a Tensar
specialist. For more information on SpectraRail Software,
contact your local Tensar representative by calling

DESIGN SUPPORT AND PROJECT ASSISTANCE
YOU CAN RELY ON
As the worldwide leader in geogrid technology and design
support, Tensar is committed to the success of your rail
stabilization project. Our products and technologies are backed
by the most thorough quality assurance practices in the industry.
We provide comprehensive design and site assistance for every
stage of a Spectra Rail System project. For example, we’ll
provide support to analyze local soil conditions at no charge.
This service delivers a more accurate assessment of in-place
soil parameters such as stiffness and strength of near-surface
soils, leading to a more reliable and economical design.
Given a specific set of soil and proposed loading conditions,
a full design section can be developed by Tensar to include a
trackbed section in full compliance with AREMA guidelines.
Pavement sections for intermodal facilities can also be
developed using our state-of-the-art design software. In
addition, we can provide case studies, system specifications,
technical notes, installation guidelines, preliminary cost
estimates as well as additional supporting documentation.
Altogether, Tensar’s engineers and technical support staff,
regional managers and national distribution network strive to
keep our systems at the forefront of today’s design technology
to meet customer needs. Rely on the experience, resources
and expertise that have set the industry standard for over
three decades. For more information on the Spectra Rail
System, call 800-TENSAR-1, e-mail email@example.com
