Abstract:

This report is Volume 3 of six volumes that document a series of tests that were conducted by the US Army Materiel Development and Readiness Command DARCOM Ammunition Center and the Military Traffic Management Command MTMC Transportation Engineering Agency TEA. The tests were performed in order to develop a technological base for selecting various materials to be used in cargo to vehicle restraint systems. This report presents results of rail impact tests that were performed on thirteen wood-nail combinations of full-scale blocking. These tests were conducted between July and October 1977, inclusive, to determine if the laboratory data could be applied to full-scale blocking and bracing design. Author
