New Rail Steels for the 21st Century: Laboratory Tests of Advanced Alloys

An overview is provided of a new rail steel development program initiated with the aim of developing next generation rail steels with superior service performance and reduced life cycle costs. Two years into the program, the technology has reached a maturation point and one of the rail steels will now be advanced to rail rolling trials. This article also provides an update on the microstructural development and mechanical testing of the next generation rail steels.
