Calculation Guidelines for Impact Testing
The scope was changed to provide focus on the details of performing the included calculations and to remove any inference, implication, or suggestion that this Recommended Practice has the purpose of predicting the risk or probability of injury.
The committee reviewed this Recommended Practice to determine what changes were necessary to include the set of calculations, methods, and indexes that are typically calculated by labs performing impact tests. Additionally, the title and scope of the document were changed to remove any unfounded implication that this document includes further analyses of the calculation results for the purpose of predicting injury. The major changes are outlined below.
