This volume is a basic introduction to information one needs to evaluate the strength of a trailer's framework. Structure generally covers a wide array of information, which we have attempted to condense for the purpose of this book. This book is a beginning guide to more in-depth analysis, should you need to explore further for you special purpose.
When we first started designing and building trailers, we were surprised to find very little information available to help us. To this day, little has changed. We were extremely disappointed then and can still empathize with you. The fact of the matter is that this industry has had very little development of any sophistication. Manufacturers doing development for their own products have kept information to themselves, for obvious reasons. And few have taken much time to test or expand the base of knowledge regarding trailers. Part of the reason for this is that, although a large quantity of trailers are built on a yearly basis, trailers are purpose-built and the quantity of each particular kind of trailer built does not justify research to any great extent. You can almost be assured that everything you need to design your trailer is not here. Hopefully, the book will at least sensitize you to some of the problems to be evaluated and your search for help can be more focused.

This book contains almost 200 pages of text with 120 informative illustrations, photographs, charts and graphs. Tables for strengths of rivets, nuts & bolts, welds in fatigue and connections plus section property tables are all part of the list. A specially calculated table of torsional strengths which compares angle, channel and tubing is almost alone worth the price of the book. Sample calculations and comparisons aid in understandingthe forces in a trailer structure.From the Author:
Engineering calculations are an important part of designing anything. A trailer is no exception. Most people with a bit of technical aptitude can understand a great deal more about strengths if given the opportunity. This book simplifies some of the complex engineering types of calculations into drawings, tables, charts, graphs and text to make it easier to grasp these concepts so important to the design of a good trailer. Again this book focuses on the generalities rather than the specifics of any one type of trailer. In fact many have told us they have used the information to build other things such as storage racks and equipment carts.
