The purpose of these tests was to provide data to enable the "Jury" to decide on one of the three locking systems and one of the three suspension systems, with a view to a comprehensive definition of the UIC automatic synthesis coupler. The programme approved by the "Pushing Group" at its meeting on 25th January 1967 covered tests on the geometrical test- bench, tests with individual wagons, running trials, tests in severe weather conditions on a line in Scandinavia and at the Vienna Arsenal climatic Testing Station. The results of the tests were discussed by the B 51 Committee on June 1967, and a report prepared for the "Jury" containing the proposals for completing the definition of the UIC automatic synthesis coupler.
