MOVING LOAD RATING

File name is ED 005. This program produces moments, shears, floor-beam reactions, equivalent uniform loads and E-ratings at various span lengths from 10 ft thru 400' for predetermined loading arrangements representing cars, locomotives and other rolling equipment. Input consists of wheel loads and spacing between adjacent axles of the subject load, together with similar information for spacer cars (if any) and the adjacent cars of the train in which subject load is to be handled. Input punched directly on tape. Output consists of span lengths with corresponding values of maximum moment, maximum quarter-point moment, maximum end shear, maximum quarter-point shear, maximum center shear and maximum floor-beam (or pier) reaction, together with the equivalent E-rating and equivalent uniform load for each above value.
