Abstract:

Static and dynamic tests were performed on an MHU-12M Munitions Handling Trailer for determining aircraft transport criteria. An existing tiedown configuration for air transport of the MHU-12M trailer, without parking shoring, was established and tested. Dynamic tests, simulating flight conditions, performed with this tiedown configuration on an unshored trailer having soft springs andor pneumatic tires revealed that a weapon-trailer combination can be excited to resonance. The developed tiedown configuration, test procedures, test data, notations of test observations and other pertinent information are presented.
