Elastic Fasting is used to secure the rail to the sleeper. Through the use of fastenings, the rail may be fastened directly or indirectly. The method involves significant longitudinal, lateral, and vertical forces being applied to the fastener. With rising loads and accelerating speeds, the forces, which are primarily dynamic, rise quickly. Due to the constant pressure put on it by moving loads, this Elastic Fasting is unable to securely secure the rail to the sleeper for an adequate amount of time.
