DETERMINING HIGHWAY SHOCK INDEX

The U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps have jointly sponsored and participated in the development of a shock index for highway transportation. A numerical shock index, associated with a particular vehicle-load combination, can now be determined at a low cost by applying simple static field measurements. The shock index provides classification for a vehicle-load combination in regard to probability of shocks transmitted to the cargo during highway shipments. /Author/
