Abstract:

The report covers an analysis of the strength of the side racks of Army tactical cargo vehicles to determine their suitability to restrain cargo during air transport. The shear strength of the attachment of the cargo bed to the frame is defined based on information furnished from the US Army Tank-Automotive Command USATACOM. Outlined are procedures for properly loading and restraining cargo in vehicles, using commonly available material. Results of the report indicate that the cargo bed shear from the frame and that these loads can be adequately restrained to the vehicle. The report also reveals potential problems in analyzing aircraft floor loads when the cargo is a loaded vehicle. Author
