USE OF POLYMERS IN RAILWAY TRACK FORMATION, PERMANENT WAY AND STRUCTURES

POLYMERWERKSTOFFE IM EISENBAHNOBERBAU, - UNTERBAU UND IN KUNSTBAUTEN

Among the materials used for the construction of parts forming the railway track bed and permanent way, as well as bridges and tunnels, polymers are becoming increasingly popular when they offer technical and economic advantages. The development of their use has not however been the same on all railways. From the answers to a questionnaire, a UIC working party has obtained a general picture of the use of polymers by 16 UIC member railways. The analysis of the 60 cases when polymers have been adopted has been published in the form of a UIC leaflet.
