SEVERITIES OF TRANSPORTATION ACCIDENTS. VOLUME I. SUMMARY. VOLUME II. CARGO AIRCRAFT, SEVERITIES OF TRANSPORTATION ACCIDENTS. VOLUME III. MOTOR CARRIERS, SEVERITIES OF TRANSPORTATION ACCIDENTS. VOLUME IV. TRAIN

This study quantitatively describes the severities of the environments that small hazardous-material containers can be expected to experience in transportation accidents. These descriptions, which constitute an important component of the risk analysis of hazardous-material shipments, are necessary in determining the adequacy of protection provided by the uniquely designed shipping containers. In Volume I, significant results of the study are summarized; in Volume II, physical parameters of aircraft accident environments are discussed; and, in Volumes III and IV, truck and train accidents are examined.
