Semi-trailer Van - Design Considerations 660077

The general design parameters used to design the aluminum semitrailer closed top van for highway operation are described in practical terms.
The discussion deals primarily with vertical loading (pay-load) and side panel design concepts; design considerations presented are general in nature. Final design must include many factors too lengthy to include.
This paper does not describe in detail the actual engineering theory of design, but uses simplified analogies so that the basic concept can be understood and, thereby, encourage repair procedures compatible to original design.
