ASTM Standards

ASTM is the American Society for Testing & Materials and was founded in 1898. It is an international standards organization that develops and publishes voluntary consensus technical standards for a wide range of materials, products, systems, and services. Some 12,575 ASTM voluntary consensus standards operate globally. Below we listed the relevant standards related to simulation equipment.

Our simulation equipment will also fulfill some of the ASTM standards.

Relevant tests for drop simulation

  • ASTM D5276- Standard Test Method for Drop Test of Loaded Containers by Free Fall.
  • ASTM D5487- Standard Test Method for Simulated Drop of Loaded Containers by Shock Machines.

Relevant tests for vibration simulation

  • ASTM D999- Standard Test Methods for Vibration Testing of Shipping Containers.
  • ASTM D3580-Standard Test Methods for Vibration (Vertical Linear Motion) Test of Products.
  • ASTM D4728- Standard Test Method for Random Vibration Testing of Shipping Containers.
  • ASTM D5112- Standard Test Method for Vibration (Horizontal Linear Sinusoidal Motion) Test of Products.
  • ASTM D7387- Standard Test Method for Vibration Testing of Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) Used for Shipping Liquid Hazardous Materials (Dangerous Goods).
