    1. Rationale

    It has been brought to the Task Groups attention that the title, some terms, and certain language used in this test method have created some confusion and misunderstanding by authorities having jurisdiction who may use this test method. The objective of the proposed revisions to this test method is to clarify the intent and use of this test method, to test a specific type of joint system.
