STUDY OF FORCE EFFECTS ON SELECTED MATERIALS USED IN CARGO TO VEHICLE RESTRAINT SYSTEMS FOR RAIL TRANSPORT. VOLUME 4. STUDY OF THE EFFECTS OF NAIL COATING

A number of laboratory tests were conducted in the past four years to establish physical criteria for and characteristics of cargo restaint systems. Those tests indicated that nail coating is effective only for high-carbon-steel (AISI 1040), cement-coated nails used in oak wood. The effectiveness is shown by a significant increase in the lateral resistance of a wood-nail assembly to dynamic forces. This report presents results of further tests, which sought to explain some of the results of the previous laboratory tests.
