MANUFACTURE OF COMPOSITE ALUMINUM-STEEL CONTACT RAILS WITH METALLURGICAL BONDING BETWEEN ALUMINUM AND STEEL BY COEXTRUSION

HERSTELLUNG VON ALUMINIUM/STAHLVERBUNDSTROMSCHIENEN MIT METALLURGISCHER BINDUNG ZWISCHEN ALUMINIUM UND STAHL DURCH VERBUNDSTRANGPRESSEN

The process of manufacturing steel-clad aluminum rails by coextrusion is described. Investigations of the properties of an AlMgSi 0.5 rail clad with 18-9 stainless steel include the strength of the bond, the bimetal effect, the effects of fatigue stresses, stretching and bending on the bond, corrosion of the rail, the abrasion resistance of the steel cladding, and weldability of the rail. The electric resistivity of the interface is about 1 micro-ohm/sq cm.
