CALL for papers: special issue on “Hybrid Composites for Railway applications”


Lead Editor of Special Issue: Dr. Sanjay Mavinkere Rangappa

Scope of Special issue
Composite materials have been successfully used in railway applications. Due to the implementation of highly restrictive safety and pollution legislations in the railway industry, hybrid composites have become an increasingly important topic over the last decade. Hybrid composites constitute an excellent alternative to traditional materials, due to their highly specific mechanical, thermal and other properties. In this regard, the main aim of the special issue includes new and recent advances in composite materials for railway applications. This special issue will be a collection of 10 peer-reviewed contributions that present original breakthrough research in the field of composites for railway applications. Moreover, the special edition expects to provide a platform to publish cutting-edge research from around the globe.
