Abstract: This paper mainly deals with corrosion that occurs in Railway coaches and bogie components, causes of corrosion, steps taken to prevent corrosion, suggestions to minimize this problem. This paper contains new suggestions to minimize the problems: more emphasis has laid on dissimilar welding and special coating which are being done perfunctorily, the various most affected parts near the bottom of lavatory side wall plates are to be identified and replacing by dissimilar material of stainless steel and IRS M – 41.Study of modification in components design and epoxy coating methods are to be applied on the sole bar and destruction tubes. This paper describes the technique and gives details on applications.
Keywords: Coating, Corrosion prevention design, Dissimilar welding, Surface treatment.
