The design of a new track type and train wheels for high abrasion conditions



Ceit-IK4 and Idonial, together with Arcelor Mittal and Copasa, are collaborating on a project that will allow trains to meet the challenges that sand and extreme temperature changes present when operating in the desert. The Railsand project, which is sponsored by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, is seeking solutions that will address the adverse effects that these extreme conditions have on the railway track.
