scope:

1.1 This test method provides a procedure for characterizing the performance of a trash receptacle when an explosive is detonated within the receptacle.

1.1.1 The procedure determines the extent and location of fragments produced during the explosion, and whether breaches are created in the exterior surfaces of the trash receptacle.

1.1.2 Appendix X1 provides guidance for determining the magnitude of blast waves (that is, external overpressures) developed.

1.1.3 Effects due to a fireball resulting from the detonation of an explosive within a trash receptacle are beyond the scope of the test method.

1.2 This test method is intended to be performed in open-air test arenas.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values stated in parentheses are for information only.

1.4 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.

1.5 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.
