Development and Testing of Heavy Haul Sleepers

In order to compete with other transportation modes, rail operators (particularly freight) need higher axle loads that can withstand inherently greater static and dynamic forces. Rail.One has designed the UP 04 pre-stressed concrete sleeper in accordance with the European Standard EN 13230. The authors discuss engineering and design considerations and testing involved in creating the UP 04 sleeper.
