RUNNING SAFETY OF VEHICLES FITTED WITH THE AUTOMATIC COUPLER--PROBLEMS OF RUNNING SAFETY FOR VEHICLES FITTED WITH THE AUTOMATIC COUPLER AND POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS
Formulation of a derailment theory applicable to the problem of vehicles fitted with automatic couplers is outlined. The following are braking at slow speeds, pushing from the rear, and incorporation of unloaded cars in heavy trains.
