Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 10 June 1998
Status: inactive
Page Count: 3
ICS Code (Mechanical testing): 19.060
scope:

1.1 This test method covers the determination of resonances unpackaged products and components by means of horizontal linear sinusoidal motion applied at the surface on which the product is mounted. For vertical vibration testing of products see Method D3580. Two alternate test methods are presented:

1.1.1 Test Method A - Resonance Search Using Sinusoidal Vibration, and

1.12 Test Method B - Resonance Search Using Random Vibration.

1.2 This information may be used to examine the response of products to vibration for product design purposes, or for the design of a container or interior package that will minimize transportation vibration inputs at the critical frequencies, when the product resonances are within the expected transportation environment frequency range. Since vibration damage is most likely to occur at product resonant frequencies, these may be thought of as potential product fragility points.

1.3 Information obtained from the optional sinusoids dwell and random test methods may be used to assess the fatigue characteristics of the resonating components and for product modification. This may become necessary if a product's response would require design of an impractical or excessively costly shipping container.

1.4 This test method does not necessarily simulate vibration effects the product will encounter in operating or end-use environments. Other, more suitable test procedures should be used for this purpose.

1.5 The values stated in S1 units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific precautionary statements, see Section 6.
