dynamic composites railway ties

Patent US6336265 - Composite railroad cross tie and method of ...A composite railroad cross tie supporting railroad track rails on a ballast or concrete roadbed is provided comprising an elongated wooden core, an end cap positioned over each end of the core and an outer shell or coating. The wooden core consists of virgin or recycled natural wood or of man made engineered wood such as oriented strand board (OSB), plywood, and the like. The outer coating can consist of virgin or recycled thermoplastic, thermoset resin, and/or rubber, with or ...

Railway Sleepers, Railroad Ties, Wooden and Concrete Sleepersrailway sleepers, also called railroad ties, is mainly divided into 4 types: steel railroad sleepers, wooden and concrete sleepers, plastic composite rail sleepers. ... in Europe and Asia. Steel railway ties are common on secondary lines in the UK, and plastic composite railway ties are also employed, although far less than wood or concrete. ... Wooden railway sleepers provide a resilient track with excellent dynamic attenuation of impact loading as well as decrease of noise and vibration.

At a Glance: Railway Sleeper Materials - Railway Technology5 Aug 2010 ... The natural properties of wood (usually hardwood such as oak, but cheaper softwood has been used on lighter, less busy lines) are suited to providing a resilient track with excellent dynamic attenuation of impact loading as well as noise ... Composite sleepers are made from various mixtures of materials (plastic, rubber from used tyres, waste fibreglass) to create a synthetic material with the pliability and accessibility of wood, coupled with the durability of concrete.

news feeds - Axion Structural InnovationsComposite Railroad ties and Plastic Railroad ties, made by Axion Structural Innovations, Inc. (ocbb:AXIH), are manufactured and produced using 100% recycled plastic industrial building materials having a higher specific strength than steel. Lighter, stronger, and more cost effective our railroad ties, I-beams, and pilings are changing the way infrastructure is built. Axion products will not rot, rust, crumble, corrode, degrade, fade or crack under stress.

S2A03 - iifc-hqThis paper presents the results of an experimental investigation on the flexural and shear behaviour of a new type of fibre composite sleeper for railway turnout application. The building block of this innovative railway sleeper is a new generation composite sandwich structure made up of glass fibre composite skins and modified phenolic core material that has been specifically developed for civil engineering applications. Three different section configurations for railway sleepers were ...

Dynamic properties of railway track and its ... - Research Online - UOWThe track vibrations can cause the crack damage in railway sleepers or fasteners, or even the breakage of ballast support. Therefore, the identification of dynamic properties of railway track and its components is imperative, in order to avoid any train operation that might trigger such resonances. This chapter deals with the vibration measurement techniques and the dynamic behaviours of ballasted railway tracks, and in particular their major components. It describes the concept of.
