6.4.1   Checking transverse and longitudinal loads to the container
The spread of the longitudinal beams is s = 1.25 m. The selected length of beams t = 3.20 m, obtained by entering the diagram in Figure 13 with mC/P = 0.60, satisfies the requirements of the transverse strength of the container.

For safeguarding the longitudinal strength of the container, a length of beams t = 2.00 m would have been sufficient, according to the diagram in Figure 13.
