Title

Use of Tramline Sleepers in Coal Mines: Assessment of Their Requirement and Development of Substitutes

Currently, only wooden sleepers are used for tracks in India's coal mines, with a few exceptions. This article examines the requirements for larger size sleepers, and also the possible substitutes for wood, such as concrete, cast iron and steel. Design and economic factors involved in the development of a suitable substitute for wooden sleepers are considered.
