ASTM WK39433

    Revision of F2291 - 11 Standard Practice for Design of Amusement Rides and Devices

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F2291 - 15

    Developed by Subcommittee: F24.24 | Committee F24 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The G-Force task group has determined that there is a need to clearly define how to calculate onset. Onset is currently undefined within the standard. By adding a clear definition of onset will help facilitate the proper use of calculating onset in an accepted method that allows for comparison against the published onset limits with the standard.
