BS EN 12195-1:2003

Load restraint assemblies on road vehicles. Safety. Calculation of lashing forces (British Standard)

This Part of prEN 12195 specifies acceleration coefficients for surface transport. It also gives methods of calculation of lashing forces acting on goods on load carriers, lorries, trailers and swap bodies, either on road, on vessels or by rail and/or combinations thereof for different types of load and different types of lashing. It  excludes the hump shunting during railway transport (web lashings see EN 12195-2, lashing chains see EN 12195-3, wire lashing ropes see prEN 12195-4). The lashing forces to be chosen for calculation in this EN 12195-1 are static forces produced by tensioning of lashings and dynamic forces, which act on the lashing as a reaction of the load movements. Instructions for the application of calculations are also specified.
