Railway rail producing standard UIC860 introduction

UIC860 is a standard produced by the International Union of Railways (Union Internationale des Chemins de Fer or UIC) that specifies the technical requirements for railway track materials, including steel rails, fishplates, and fastenings. It covers topics such as material composition, mechanical properties, geometry, and tolerances, as well as testing and certification procedures. The standard is widely used in railway construction and maintenance around the world.

UIC860 standard covers the technical specifications of flat-bottomed rails made of steel, which are commonly used in railway systems. The standard specifies characteristics such as the rail profile, straightness, surface conditions, chemical composition, and mechanical properties. The standard includes rails with different lengths, weights, and sizes for use in various parts of the railway system, including main lines, branch lines, and switches and crossings. The UIC860 standard also includes requirements for rail accessories such as fishplates and rail fastenings.

The UIC860 standard for flat-bottomed rails is mainly used in Europe and other parts of the world that follow European railway standards. The International Union of Railways (UIC), which developed the standard, is an organization that represents the interests of railways across Europe and supports the development of railway systems worldwide. The UIC860 standard is widely used in many countries across Europe, as well as in some countries in Asia, Africa, and the Americas. However, it is important to note that different countries and regions may have their own specific requirements for railway tracks, and some may use different rail standards.

Many countries around the world use the UIC860 standard for flat-bottomed rails. Some examples of countries that use this rail standard include:

– Germany
– France
– Spain
– Italy
– Belgium
– Switzerland
– Austria
– Netherlands
– Sweden
– Norway
– Finland
– Denmark
– Poland
– Czech Republic
– Hungary
– Turkey
– Russia
– Iran
– India

This is not an exhaustive list, as other countries also use the UIC860 rail standard. However, it is important to note that some countries may have specific variations or additions to the standard based on their own requirements.
