Abstract:

An investigation was made of the restraint requirements for Army cargo in Army aircraft, presenting realistic criteria for cargo restraint systems with the formulation of feasible restraint concepts. The existing static load factor criterion is shown to be insufficient. A dynamic analysis relates crash pulse criterion to restraint system deflection, leading to load limiting type energy absorber concepts. An effectiveness analysis is given of existing Army cargo restraint methods as presently employed, the same methods applied in a correct manner, and the proposed restraint system properly applied.
