When developing railway vehicles, passenger safety is a central issue setting high requirements in crash behaviour and fire protection. Thus, the choice of the manufactured material is essential. Researchers from the Department of Lightweight Design at Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology IWU developed a new material and manufacturing concept with an excellent lightweight design potential.
Environmental noise has a huge impact on human health and quality of life. Reducing noise emissions in rail is an important step in dealing with this issue.
