In the rail facilities, the rail track consists of rail, tie, fastening, accessories and bed. The rail track is largely divided into Ballast Bed Track (BBT) and Concrete Bed Track (CBT) according to the type of bed. In this thesis, among Concrete Bed Track, slab track, which is used for the Japanese high speed railway, is a target of this study. Dynamic analysis by using finite element method are performed where moving train load is periodic function. Then through parametric study, some conclusions are obtained as follows. Cement Asphalt Mortar (CAM) affects contrary mechanical behavior to rail and slab greatly. Therefore, change of CAM spring coefficient should be handled with care. For slab thickness, thin slab is more profitable to reduction of vibration of rail than thick one but mechanical capacity of slab is deteriorated. Improved structural type is proposed, then structural analysis is performed for this one. This type is effective to reduction of vibration of railway system.
