EVALUATION OF THREE DEVICES TO SECURE INTERMODAL CONTAINERS TO FLAT-BED TRAILERS

Three different securement devices have been tested to determine whether they meet Department of Transportation safety and strength requirements for attaching intermodal containers to regular flat-bed trailers. The tests consisted of a series of static loads applied to simulate the hazards of transportation. Each of the three devices passed all tests and it is concluded that the designs are satisfactory and that they may be used for over-the-road transport of ammunition. (Author)
