Calibration is essential in the use of various test platforms and devices to insure that the test results generated by these test devices are accurate, repeatable and meaningful. This standard gives the necessary instructions for the calibration of all of the test devices cited in the Scope.View Less
1.1 This practice gives procedures for the calibration of:
reference load cells
calibration platform systems by using a reference load cell
static calibration of braking/tractive force on locked wheels of tire test trailers, instrumented vehicles, and laboratory tire testing machines by using the calibration platform system as a calibration fixture.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
