Abstract

Safe operation of technical and technological equipments is necessary for preventing undesirable and dangerous states. The questions of lifetime and reliability of mechanical systems are solved very often in this context in practice. Particularly high demands are placed on safety of equipments that can operate only on the basis of special permissions. Transport containers for transportation of used nuclear fuel cassettes belong to this group of devices. On the basis of operator’s order, complex methodology of type tests of transport container including its means of transport was elaborated. Described methodology includes analysis of vibration of transport complex during its movement.
