Earth-moving machinery - Roll-over protective structures - Laboratory tests and performance requirements
|Publication Date:||15 September 1980|
|ICS Code (Earth-moving machinery):||53.100|
This International Standard sets out
a) characteristics, and the static laboratory tests for measurement of structural
b) the requirements for performance in a representative test
of a roll-over protective structure (ROPS) design, and is closely related to the deflection-limiting volume (DLV) (see ISO 3164).
The static laboratory tests are means of measuring the characteristics of the structures used to protect the operator at velocities of 0 to 16 km/h (0 to 10 mile/h) over hard clay where roll-over would be limited to a maximum roll angle of 360° down a slope of 30° maximum without penetration of the specified DLV by structural members of the ROPS.
This International Standard is intended to establish a consistent, reproducible means of evaluating force-deflection characteristics of ROPS under static loading and to prescribe performance requirements for these structures under such loading in a representative test.
For the purposes of this International Standard "representative test" means a test of a specimen whose material, dimensional, and processing requirements are typical of those ROPS being produced.
