  Pre stressed Concrete Sleepers. Pre stressed concrete sleepers are now-a-days extensively used in Indian Railway. These sleepers have high initial cost but are very cheap in long run due to their long life. In these sleepers, high tension steel wires are used. These wires are stretched by hydraulic jack to give necessary tension in the wires. As a result, the implementation of the recycled fibres within the concrete sections is expected to reduce the overall carbon-footprint of the sleeper towards a characteristically adequate and sustainable alternative material for railway sleeper by: 1.

Download Alkali Aggregate Reaction In Concrete Railway Sleepers From Finland books, Deterioration of concrete sleepers from Finland was among the first reported cases of damage to such concrete elements, and the cause of damage had been attributed to the fact that the sleepers were heat-treated (precast), and the so-called 'secondary ettringite.

Concrete Railway Sleepers. They have design life of up to 40 years. They can easily be moulded into the required/design shape to withstand stresses induced by fast and heavy traffic. Reinforced Concrete and prestressed concrete sleepers are now replacing other types of sleepers except in some special circumstances like bridges etc. where wooden.
