CARGO RESTRAINT CRITERIA FOR RAIL TRANSPORTATION
The paper discusses criteria for cargo restraint and cargo tiedown for the forces resulting from the rail transportation environment. Methods for calculating the restraint forces for a broad range of cargo railcar combinations are covered. Use of these methods will improve accuracy of restraint criteria, and in turn, will improve reliability of cargo restraints and reduce costs consequent to restraint over design.
