RECOMMENDED PERFORMANCE TEST FOR LOOSE CARGO TRANSPORTED BY TRUCKS AND RAILROADS
Loose cargo shipped in trucks and railroads encounters dynamic stress due to vibration in trucks, humping in railcars, and shock due to falling. Stress from these causes far exceeds that from other probable sources. Current tests are inadequate to assure the development of an optimum package/product configuration. Excessive package costs or excessive damage results from this inadequacy. Test procedures for realistically evaluating packaged products are presented.
