This report discusses criteria for cargo restraint and cargo tiedown for the forces resulting from the rail transportation environment. The report covers methods for calculating the restraint forces for a broad range of cargo/railcar combinations. 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.
