The dynamic characteristic and response of the Japanese A51-type slab track subjected to the Japanese S.K.S. high-speed train are under investigation. The high-speed train running on the slab track is modeled as a sequence of individual loads moving on a layered beam on viscoelastic foundation. The dynamic stiffness matrix of a layered beam on viscoelastic foundation is established for the structural analysis. Finally the structural performance of the dynamic stability and vibrational control of the slab track to the high speed train are intensively studied and discussed.
