Standard Test Method for Measurement of Vehicular Response to Traveled Surface Roughness




1.1 This test method covers the determination of vehicular response to traveled surface roughness.

1.2 This test method utilizes an apparatus that measures the relative motion of a sprung mass system in response to traveled surface roughness where the mass is supported by automotive-type suspension and tires.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific precautionary statements are given in Section 6.
