||Barrels falling off trucks were among the major causes of road accidents involving the transport of materials in Germany between 1987 and 1989. The movements of steel and polyethylene drums on a truck during braking were studied experimentally. A variety of loading surfaces, such as wood, corrugated aluminium, or anti-slip floor mats were tested. Surfaces producing a high friction caused the barrels to tip over. From the results recommendations for inclusion in the standards on securing barrels are derived.
