ASTM D5124

Standard Practice for Testing and Use of a Random Number Generator in Lumber and Wood Products Simulation

Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 10 April 1996
Status: active
Page Count: 5
ICS Code (Wood, sawlogs and sawn timber): 79.040
scope:

This practice gives a minimum testing procedure of computer generation routines for the standard uniform distribution. Random observations from the standard uniform distribution, RU, range from zero to one with every value between zero and one having an equal chance of occurrence.

The tests described in this practice only support the basic use of random number generators, not their use in complex or extremely precise simulations.

Simulation details for the normal, lognormal, 2-parameter Weibull and 3-parameter Weibull probability distributions are presented.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.See specific warning statement in 5.5.3.

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
