VIBRATION ENVIRONMENT IN FREIGHT CARS AND ITS EFFECT ON DAMAGE TO LADING
In development of suspension systems for freight cars effect on lading should be carefully analyzed. This paper by illustrating how lading reacts to vibration environment stresses the need to reduce the range of frequencies present in the freight car as being of primary importance. It is felt that the present level of accelerations is not excessive and can be considered of secondary importance.
