This report describes and documents an aeromedical evacuation litter stanchion design and analysis. The MSCNASTRAN general purpose finite element computer code is used for the analysis. Also, details of 10 identical stanchion pairs actually built under the effort are given. The stanchion pairs are yet to be subjected to structural tests at various G-levels and in appropriate directions. The final design is a 3-litters-on-one-side arrangement with support for the structure using seat tracks common to Civil Reserve Air Fleet CRAF aircraft. Higher density litter arrangements such as 4-on-a-side or back-to-back 3 or 4 litter stanchions are explored. Floor loads exceed those generally available for these cases.
