As an essential component of railway track structure, steel rail is applied to guide train wheels move forward. The function of rail is to withstand the enormous pressure of the wheel, and pass it to the sleepers. Steel rail must provide continuous, smooth rolling surface of least resistance to train wheel. Modern rail take many years to improve the quality of materials, for example, material of steel rail is changed into steel from iron. Steel rail is typically made into I-beam, and it is made of high-quality steel alloy. The strength of rails and other track parts is important for train to keep faster and safety. How rails are made?
According to different ways like weight, standard, tensile strength, steel rail can be divided into several types. Take national standard as an example, we can classify Steel rail into the following types.
By the weight per meter, Chinese standard steel rail can be classified into three types, such as heavy rail, light rail and crane rail. When the weight per meter of steel rail is equal to or less than 30kg, it is called light rail. On the contrary, heavy rail is refer to the weight per meter of rail is more than 30kg
