INCLINE IMPACT TESTING

This test method covers the procedures for reproducing shock damage, such as that which may result from rail switching or pallet marshaling impacts, using an incline impact tester.

Incline Impact test method is for use in evaluating the capability of a container or shipping system to withstand sudden shocks and crushing forces, such as those generated from rail switching impacts or pallet marshaling, or to evaluate the capability of a container and its inner packing, or shipping system, to protect its contents during the sudden shocks and crushing forces resulting from rail switching or pallet marshaling impacts.

This test method may also be used to compare the performance of different container designs or shipping systems. The incline impact test may also permit observation of the progressive failure of a container or shipping system and damage to the contents. It is suitable for simulating the types of shock pulses experienced by lading in rail switching of rail cars with standard draft gear, but not for those with long travel draft gear or cushioned underframe.
