How to Choose ASCE Rail Size

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

What is the design procedure for choosing the size of an ASCE rail?  I have a custom cart that supports 300 kips on 4 wheels.  The wheel spacing is 12 ft. x 19 ft. Are there table that are guidelines for choosing the rail size based on load and frequency?  If so, where would I find any design guideline?

 

Thanks for your help.
