1.1 These practices cover the calculation of profilograph response to longitudinal profiles of traveled surface roughness. 1.2 These practices utilize computer simulations to obtain profilograph responses including: surface sensing wheel (recording wheel) vertical displacement and reference platform wheels (supporting wheels) motions as a function of distance. 1.3 These practices present standard profilograph simulations for use in the calculations. 1.4 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the inch-pound units are shown in parentheses. 1.5 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.
