SUMMARIZATION AND COMPARISON OF FREIGHT CAR TRUCK LOAD DATA

Methods of summarizing and presenting freight car truck load data obtained on service tests are described. Data from four separate test programs are presented in various formats. The data show considerable ranges in the load magnitudes and rates of occurence from the various test environments. This type of information is essential for evaluating the fatigue, safety, and reliability properties of freight car truck components.
