Concrete
has the initial quality of
compressive strength
to hinder product failure
through poor tensile strength
Joseph Monier invented
armed concrete in 1867
span concrete, starting in the
late 1920-ies, improved
concrete as construction
material for dynamic loads

EN 13.230 (1-5) for concrete sleepers
were established between 1995 and 2003
at this time all production systems have been
already working according national norms
therefore it could be nothing else than the
least common denominator
and it even delegates the most relevant definition of
the nominal or testing loads to the buyer
EN 13.230 deals with other norms, dimensions,
curing, impact coefficients and product testing, a
part 6 dealing with construction principles may
follow some day

What can help, finding a long lasting
concrete sleeper for your railtrack?
• end anchors secure the initial prestressing force
in the sleeper for a long product life
• supplier history is important – particularly if the
buyer is caught in a short term warranty period
• seek after experience in technical or operational
divisions of other countries with notable history
