Standard Test Method for Measuring Forces During Impact of a Soft Projectile on a Rigid Flat Surface
This document describes a method for measuring forces during an impact between a soft projectile and a relatively rigid flat surface. The document describes the hardware and instrumentation required as well as how the results are processed and interpreted.
Rationale: SAE Recommended Practice ARP6924 defines the tests required to qualify an artificial bird material for aircraft certification testing in applications involving bird strike. Each of the tests required must be defined in detail. This Aerospace Standard defines the details of one of the necessary tests that ARP6924 specifies.
