RAIL STRESS CALCULATIONS FOR MULTIPLE LOADS

For a given set of rail sections, the program calculates stress values for given load configurations. For each loading, the rail stress is calculated under each axle and at the mid-point between axles. Also, for each rail section, the program calculates maximum equipment operating speeds within a stress safety limit of 35 Kips (30 Kips for C.W.R.) using maximum tension value found on the rail base.
