HYBRID BODY OF UNDERGROUND RAILWAY CAR: PATH TOWARDS REDUCED WEIGHT OF RAIL VEHICLES

Abstract

The purpose of the development of a hybrid body for underground railway cars was to achieve weight reduction and a favourable impact on operating costs, primarily due to energy savings. The present paper describes the construction sequence of a prototype body shell.
