Abstract:

The U.S. Army Defense Ammunition Center DAC, Validation Engineering Division SOSAC-DEV, was tasked by the Transportation Engineering Division SOSAC-DET to conduct transportability testing using the Rapid International Standards Organization Bracing System RIBS material to secure munitions in both an intermodal side-opening and end-opening container. The RIBS was manufactured by Mobile Shelter Systems MSS. The loading procedures specified in AMC Drawing 19-48-7127 were used as a guideline for securing the munitions in the side-opening container. The RIBS was substituted for the wood dunnage specified in AMO Drawing 19-48-7127, with the exception of the side wallidoor panel gates. The loading procedures specified in AMC Drawing 19-48- 4155 were used as a guideline for securing the munitions in an end-opening container. The RIBS was substituted for the wood dunnage specified in AMC Drawing 19-48-4155, with the exception of the side fill assemblies, separator gates and load bearing gate. The container loads were tested in accordance with TP-94-01,Transportability Testing Procedures.
