Stress tests were conducted in the carbody of the railroad car to check the structural strength of the body of the railroad car. The objective of this study was to evaluate safety of the carbody of a railroad car under the maximal strength. The carbody of rolling stock is a principal structure that supports major equipment of the underframe and the freight. Therefore, the strength evaluation of this structure is important. This study was carried out to analyze the structure of carbody and evaluate safety under maximum vertical load, compressive load, and torsional load. Accordingly, stress tests were conducted on the carbody to measure the stress on each of their parts. Before the load test, a structural-analysis program was used for the stress distribution analysis of the body structure.
