Abstract:

An engineer design road test and a railroad hump test were performed on the electronic equipment shelter, S-153, which contained simulated components of the radioteletypewriter system, ANGRC-122. These tests were conducted to measure shock and vibration response and to evaluate the structural adequacy of the system during road transport on the M37 truck and during railroad hump tests. There was no apparent damage to the shelter or equipment as a result of road shock and vibration tests. The tiedown slings which were provided adequately secured the shelter to the M37 truck. Railroad hump tests produced numerous failures of equipment mountings within the shelter it is apparent from these failures that the present mounting methods are inadequate to restrain the equipment during railroad transportation. It is recommended that the damaged mountings be redesigned or modified and that additional hump tests be conducted to evaluate these modifications. Author
