Projects

The Rail Manufacturing CRC has three research program themes that align with the strategic goals for the development of Australia’s rail manufacturing sector.

Research area 1 – Power and Propulsion
Energy, cost efficiency and improved competitive performance in advanced rail manufacturing through research, development and commercialisation in:

  • Energy Regeneration and Storage
  • Advanced Braking Systems
  • Electronic Motor and Systems

Research area 2 – Materials and Manufacturing
Competitive cost, durability and performance in advanced rail manufacturing through research, development and commercialisation in:

  • High Performance Materials for Heavy Haul
  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Advanced Lightweight Materials
  • Low Cost Manufacturing Systems

Research area 3 – Design, Modelling and Simulation
Safety and efficiency in advanced rail manufacturing to enhance industry competitiveness through research, development and commercialisation in:

  • Advanced Design and Simulation
  • Automated Health Monitoring
  • Advanced Data Analysis and Information Systems
  • Advanced Operations Management Systems
  • Energy Use Management Tools

All projects managed by the Centre must align to at least one of these research areas. A full list of current projects underway is published on each research area page (links above).
