Track ballast - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Periodic table - chart of all chemical elements
Which could be the alternative materials which can be used / tried out instead of Ballast or crushing stones ?. viz Cement, plaster of Paris, sand, metal, non metals etc for railway tracks ?.
If we create a Word document with four columns viz. Material, Advantage, Disadvantage and Conclusion, will this be a good reference for Materials evaluation as a alternative to Crushing stones ?.
The Train should run more efficiently on the railway tracks with the New Material installed viz Cement, Sand, Plaster of Paris, Coal, Metal, Non Metal, Limestone, Gravel etc instead of the crushing stones. Maintenance also has to be taken into picture for replacing the material if wear out.
I also feel Rutherford's periodic table could be a useful reference.
