DYNAMIC ANALYSIS TO ESTABLISH NORMAL SHOCK AND VIBRATION OF RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL SHIPPING PACKAGES

A computer program MARCS (Model Analysis of a Rail Car-Cask System) was written to perform a modal analysis on the systems represented by the CARDT and CARDS (Cask-Rail Car Dynamic Simulator) models. Parameters generated by MARCS will be used to generate frequency response spectra. A preliminary evaluation of the performance of CARDS was made by comparing calculated results with response variables measured during Test 3 of the series of tests conducted at the Savannah River Laboratories, Aiken, SC.
