Public transportation has always been of great interest to researchers and has been considered an essential and efficient method for transporting people and various goods over the past two centuries. In recent studies, the examination of influential parameters on the efficiency of these vehicles has played a prominent role, and numerous researchers have continuously investigated the safety and various parameters of freight wagons. One of the challenges that can be raised as an issue in standard open-top freight wagons is the placement and positioning of the load inside these wagons. Considering that loading these wagons is not standardized in the industry and the load may be placed more or less in different positions at each loading stage, examining the effect of this issue on the safety of the movement of wagons in a curve can be essential. In this study, by considering a standard open-top freight wagon in the Universal Mechanism software, the effect of placing a hypothetical concentrated load in four different positions on the derailment coefficient in a curve with three different non-critical speeds is investigated. Ultimately, by comparing the results, the effect of this parameter on the derailment coefficient is discussed. The focus of this study was solely on the safety of the wagon's movement.
