Wanted to share some papers and data that the folks over at Rubee / Visible Assets shared with us. Here are a couple of the plots in the papers too that give a rough idea of typical shock and vibration environments in transportation.

Truck Superimposed Shock Response Envelopes with 3% Damping
(Magnuson and Wilson 1977)

Shock Response Spectral Envelopes (All Axes) for Typical Shock Events, Railroad
Freight Car Environment (Ahlbeck and Doyle 1974)
