Highlights•Rail vehicle’s loads on rail pads involve quasi-static load and random dynamic load.•Loss factors of high-speed rail pads at wide temperatures are within 0.05–0.35.•Glass transformation temperatures of high-speed rail pads are between −40 and −45 °C.•Dynamic property of rail pad under random dynamic load is time-variable.•Rail pad’s dynamic property under random dynamic load depends on quasi-static load.
