Abstract—China’s high-speed, heavy-haul, and urban rail transit have been vigorously developed in recent years. Some new technologies, structures, and materials have been widely used in engineering practice. At the same time, the teaching of track engineering theory and technology courses is facing a big challenge. How to combine some typical engineering cases to explain the knowledge points of the course has become an important problem to be solved. In this paper, given the characteristics of the course content of track engineering theory and technology, two typical case groups of high-speed railway longitudinal plate ballastless track interlayer disease and high-speed railway ballast track key technology are set. The teaching effect of the adopted cases is evaluated, and the results show that the teaching effect of adopting the case teaching method is good. 
Keywords—case teaching, track structure, teaching practice, evaluation of effectiveness
