METALLOGRAPHIC EXAMINATION OF SPECIMENS REMOVED FROM A SECTION OF TANK CAR IN SOUTH BYRON, NEW YORK DERAILMENT
The analysis presented in this report was conducted on the two specimens removed from shell plates. There are variations in banding, ferrite volume, blocky and acicular ferrite, but these represent normal variations in ingot freezing practice and rolling mill practice. None of these variations should result in significant differences in tensile rupture characteristics.
