DYNAMIC ANALYSIS TO ESTABLISH NORMAL SHOCK AND VIBRATION OF RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL SHIPPING PACKAGES

A calculation sequence was developed to simulate the behavior of the coupler subsystem for the cask-rail car and the lead car it impacts during humping operations. This coupler submodel was tested successfully, but additional development and better input data are required. The results must be compared to the actual performance of a coupler before the submodel can be considered an accurate simulation.
