Experiment-6: Shipping Container Transverse Impact Tests at Lehigh University
Experiment Type: Large Scale
Description: These tests focus on the linear and nonlinear transverse impact of the flexural members of the shipping container. This experiment consisted of two phases.
- Phase1 involved transverse impact of the bottom beam and corner post of the shipping container. The load cell was located at the middle of the flexural member.
- Phase2 involved transverse impact of the simply supported beam. The beam was connected to the shipping container as a simplified model of the flexural member of the container. The beam consisted of a 2 in x 2 in tube section and solid bar section with span length of 8.5 ft.
