In this paper, a numerical method for evaluating the efficiency of vibration reduction of substructure under floating slab track is developed for optimal design of floating slab track. The equation of motion for train and track interaction system is derived by applying compatibility condition at the contact points between wheels and rails. The train is modelled by 3-masses system and the track by continuous support beam system. Numerical analyses are carried out to investigate the effects of train speed, stiffness and damping of slab-pad, and track irregularity upon vibration reduction in substructure under the track.
