The implementation of projects for the construction of high-speed railways actualizes the search of effective approaches to accounting the influence of soil strata heterogeneity along the course of the track on differential foundation settlements of overpasses. Russian special technical conditions prescribe sufficiently stringent regulation limits of absolute values of overpasses' foundation soil settlements (20 mm for ballastless track) and angles of break in profile (the differential foundation soil settlement), which should not exceed 1 ‰ for ballastless track. These requirements make it necessary to develop the calculation method, which is based on the criterion of deformation. To ensure compliance of design solutions to the specified regulations it is appropriate to use the method of the predefined equated soil settlements for design of shallow foundations of overpasses for high-speed railways. Several features of application of this method are presented in this article.
