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 of Nailed Floor-Line Blocking Methods. The testing was conducted in accordance with TP-94-01, Transportability Testing Procedures, with the exception that the washboard course testing was optional. The Nailed Floor-Line Blocking Methods used during testing on 20 May 2002, 13 August 2002,16 August 2002, and 22-26 August 2002 successfully completed the Hazard Course Testing and the Road Trip Testing as specified in TP-94-01, Transportability Testing Procedures. The nailing criteria and procedures for the nailed floor line blocking methods utilized during the successful testing are adequate and safe for transportation of ammunition in closed van trailers for highway movement. The nails that were utilized during the successful testing were hand driven and conformed to the ASTM Fl 667 requirements for common steel nails.
