Thanks also for support from the railway scientific and technological research and development center called "The mechanism and evolution rule of the graded gravel under freeze and thawing cycles for the high speed railway" (Project No. J2014G003) and "The disease control technology and equipment of gradating gravel in surface layer of subgrade bed" (Project No. 2013YJ032).

Abstract: This paper presents methods for monitoring frost heave, device requirements, testing principals, and data analysis requirements, such as manual leveling observation, automatic monitoring (frost heave, frost depth, and moisture), track dynamic detection, and track status detection. We focused on the requirements of subgrade frost heave monitoring for high speed railways, and the relationship of different monitoring methods during different phases of the railway. The comprehensive monitoring system of high speed railway subgrade frost heave provided the technical support for dynamic design during construction and safe operation of the rail system.

Key words: high speed railway, frost heave monitoring, automatic monitoring, manual leveling observation, rail detection
