INTERIM AAR GUIDELINES FOR FATIGUE ANALYSIS OF FREIGHT CARS, VOLUME 1
This interim specification is a guideline for fatigue analysis of freight cars. The methodology presented gives the designer or analyst a reliable technique for determining the fatigue life of a freight car or component when subjected to fluctuating stresses. Through the use of these guidelines, fatigue life calculations can be readily incorporated into the overall freight car design procedure.
