This article is digested from a paper by K.P. Brockway which was presented to the Institution of Locomotive Engineers in London in October, 1959. The paper discusses the principles and features of rolling stock design; the durability of aluminum, its elastic properties, deflection, impact strength, proof stress, bearing strength, compressive strength, thermal expansion, design loadings, and geometry of the structure. The use of thin sections and the adoption of the most efficient structural shapes assist the designer in his quest for economy.
