Abstract : The U.S. Army Defense Ammunition Center and School (USADACS), Validation Engineering Division (SMCAC-DEV), was tasked by USADACS, Transportation Engineering Division (SMCAC-DET), conduct a study to assess the maximum strengths of 1-1/4- and 2-inch steel strapping sealed with crimping sealers and notching sealers. The configurations tested included the following for both sizes of strapping: (a) One strapping seal per strap with one crimp per seal. (b) One strapping seal per strap with two crimps per seal. (c) Two strapping seals per strap with two crimps per seal. (d) One strapping seal per strap with one notch per seal. (e) One strapping seal per strap with two notches per seal.
