Safe Highway Transportation of Bulk Liquids 700872
Bulk transportation of liquids is unique in that dynamic action of the liquid while the vehicle is in motion affects its roadability. Several parameters of the design influence the effect of this action, as documented by road tests and a theoretical analysis. Many liquids are hazardous, requiring attention to various types of accessory equipment to comply with various government regulations. The resulting highway tanker is a relatively complex welded structure of low alloy steel, aluminum or stainless steel.
