SURVEY OF THE TRANSPORTATION SHOCK AND VIBRATION IMPUT TO CARGO

The shock and vibration environment encountered by cargo during transportation is reviewed. Available data describing the environment on trucks, railcars, ships and aircraft is summarized. The vibration environment is described in terms of probability of occurrence of peak accelerations as a function of frequency. Peak acceleration levels, 99.5%, 99%, 98%, and 90% probability levels are presented for particular vehicles covering a wide range of operating conditions. Curves are presented to show the effect of direction, load, location and speed on the environment. Shock spectra are presented for typical events encountered during transportation.
