STANDARDISATION OF WAGONS. IMPACT TESTS WITH WAGONS TO SIMULATE OPERATIONAL LOADING
The present report describes the performance and evaluation of static compression tests and subsequent impact tests intended to simulate impact loading, to which the wagon is submitted in an operational life of 16 years. The tests were made with 3 wagons of different types with the same external test conditions. In particular, the report contains information about the behaviour of these wagons in respect of loading in the static compression test and impact test.
