DEVELOPMENT OF NEW DESIGN FOR RAILROAD FLATCAR TO CARRY CARGO CONTAINERS AND HIGHWAY TRAILERS INTERCHANGEABLY

Review of approach taken to evolve new design by initial writing of set of general specifications, purchase from each of four car builders of prototype, laboratory testing and period of service testing for each prototype, writing of final specifications for production car, and final performance testing of production model; data on end wall force measurements on containers, longitudinal restraint force, and trailer kingpin forces at various speeds of coupling impacts are presented for final production design.
