The theoretical basis of reduction of thermal deformations of the ballastless continuous welded track has been developed. The design of the track with integrated rails has been improved by using a special concrete liner of optimal composition with quartz fillers and aggregates and two-component polyurethane. The method of calculating the concrete composition with optimal strength and coefficient of linear thermal expansion together with optimal structural characteristics, To reduce the temperature stresses in the rails, liners should be made of concrete with quartz fillers and aggregates which provide a reduction of the coefficient of linear thermal expansion αL to 1.1×10-6 K-1. The analysis of the stressstrain state of the rails during heating, performed using the finite element method, has shown that the liners made of concrete with quartz aggregates decrease by 10-32% the temperature stresses in rails. The composition of concrete for liners with the compressive strength of above 60 MPa has been substantiated and the polyurethane composition has been selected for insulation of rails from the channel wall with adhesion to concrete of 0.7 MPa in a dry state, 0.43 MPa in a water-saturated state, and adhesion to steel of 1.2 MPa.
