Abstract:

This project was initiated to develop a performance specification for procuring pallets made of material other than wood. The pallets are intended to be used by the DoD to storetransport general cargo. Due to the nature of the project and the amount of time required for completion, it was decided to accomplish the overall objective in three separate phases. The first phase, conducted under this project number 74-P7-28, concerns gathering data from previous pallet tests, evaluating the results and methods used in the tests, establishing pallet designstrength criteria, and writing a specification draft incorporating performance requirements and test method to evaluate candidate pallets.
