HIGH AND WIDE CLEARANCE PROGRAM

The file name is CLEAR. This program clears a load for high and wide considerations for involving various types of load configuration (from single to double overhang). The program is made up of the following components: 1. Network - as described for heavy loads in RRIS #098751. 2. Clearance data - The Railroad network was sectionalized into grids describing a stretch of homogeneous railroad for a track. All geometric obstructions are coded by segments and by general diagram information (location, track No.). The input consists of car configuration geometric description of and type of car assembly. The route is set up in the same manner as in the Heavy Load Program. In fact if this program could be on line with the heavy load program then they could be run simultaneously.
