Railway composites provide substantial flexibility in train design and helps in the development of train performance. Composite materials are widely used in the railway industry worldwide wherein the performance enhancement is important. Composites have been applied in railways as they meet their rigid requirements. The use of composites in engineering designs has become essential owing to their satisfactory performance in extreme conditions such as high temperature, moisture, pressure, corrosion, high stress, possesses fire retarding properties, and others. Railway composites lower energy consumption, help in the dampening of vibration to decrease noise levels and enhance passenger comfort. Railway composites used for numerous applications in railways mainly comprise metal or non-metal honeycomb and sandwich constructions.

COVID-19 Impact analysis
