A new trend with composites: Weight reduction & fire protection efficiency:

 

Key Focus

  • Composite and lightweight material: Is a 100% composite based rolling stock realistic?
  • Lightweight material and fire safety issue: Impact of the new European standardization

 

Railway (A new trend with composites: Weight reduction & fire protection efficiency)

 

  • Composite and lightweight material: Is a 100% composite based rolling stock realistic?
  • Lightweight material and fire safety issue: Impact of the new European standardization

 

As the expectations of rail operators and passengers continue to evolve, rail vehicle designers and manufacturers face more and more challenges. Some of the key issues are:
- Safety, both fire performance and crash worthiness
- Reduce running costs achievable by improved energy efficiency and particularly weight reduction
- Increased carrying capacity
- High speed travel
- Pan-European interoperability
This Rail Forum will focus on composites as a key candidate material for meeting these challenges, their cost, safety and fire performances and how the new European standard TS45545 impacts upon their current areas of application and future technical developments.

Composite and lightweight material: Is a 100% composite based rolling stock realistic?

 

1 - The feed-back from the exploiting body: Use of composite materials in railway applications

 

SNCF, Centre d’Ingénierie du Matériel (CIM)
Bernard Roure, Operations Executive - Materials Department
 
Patrick Jumin
Operations Executive - Materials Department
  • Return of experience on the current standards management and knowledge on past, present and new designs
  • Research of the SNCF in composite materials in several projects
  • Validation of composite structures: the experts of SNCF must be able to foresee their behaviour and impacts on Life Cycle Cost

 

2 - Advanced lightweight composite materials for railway applications

 
Umeco
Richard Horn, Rail Market Manager
  • Advanced lightweight materials & Weight
reduction
  • Safety features, fire and impact performance
  • Case study: Bombardier Transportation UK
 

3 - Design approaches in lightweight vehicles

 

Creactive Design
Neil Bates, Director
  • Improved train environments and journeyexperience for the customer
  • Weight saving
  • Lower energy demand and fuel efficiency
  • Renovation factored into the design life-cycle
  • Improved whole-life cost, making this train a very attractive proposition

 

Lightweight material and fire safety issue: Impact of the new European standardization

 

4 - Key changes and impacts on material development for railway market in connection with the TS 45545 release

 

Crepim
Franck Poutch, Technical Director
  • The 5 Ws of the TS 45545
  • The impact of stringent regulation especially the heat release parameter on material development
  • The consequences on strategy development to release compliant FR material
  • Case studies and FR review
 

5 - Resin producer solutions for CEN 45545-2: Coating, Gel-Coat and UP Resins meet HL1, HL2 & HL3

 

Walter Mäder AG
Paul Wartenweiler, Marketing & Sales Manager
  • CEN 45545-2 Status
  • CEN 45545-2 Challenges and technologies to
overcome them
  • Mäder Total solutions
 

6 - Lightweight flame retardant thermosets composites with low smoke generation

 

Abmaco

Waldomiro Moreira, Sales, Marketing & Technical Support
  • Composites compounds based on thermoset polyester, fillers and additives that exceed the currently stringent standards
  • Ultra low viscosity compound mostly developed for closed moulding processes such as RTM or VARTM
  • Low cost, ultra-low viscosity halogen free, biobased unsaturated polyester resin
