DYNAMIC ANALYSIS TO ESTABLISH NORMAL SHOCK AND VIBRATION ENVIRONMENTS EXPERIENCED BY RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL SHIPPING PACKAGES

The objective of this study, is to determine the extent to which the shocks and vibrations experienced by radioactive material shipping packages during normal transport conditions are influenced by, or are sensitive to, various structural parameters of the transport system (i.e. package, package supports, and vehicle). This will enable us to identify those parameters which significantly affect the normal shock and vibration environments in order to provide the basis for determining the forces transmitted to radioactive material packages. Determination of these forces will provide the input data necessary for a broad range of package-tiedown structural assessments. This is the second quarterly report on this work. The first quarterly report presented a work plan consisting of seven tasks. Progress on these tasks during this reporting period is discussed.
