This test method is used to evaluate how dynamic stresses associated with vibration affect filled shipping containers. The test procedures are designed to replicate vibration environments to estimate the damage, or lack of damage, present during shipping. As a result the performance of the shipping container and its interior contents can be evaluated.
The standard outlines four test procedures suitable for testing shipping containers of various forms, materials, configurations, sizes and weights. The procedures include:
