Tests were conducted in America under actual running conditions by Waugh Laboratories on the Woodhead-Monroe shock absorber which is of the bleed and blow-off type. Resistance characteristics are extremely versatile since there are six variables on both compression and rebound strokes. Results on a 40-ton refrigerator car were expressed as a percentage of that experienced without shock absorbers, and ranged as low as 7 percent in the vertical plane and 53 percent in the lateral plane for a 25,000 lb. load.
