ASTM WK43298

    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

    In an effort to maintain consistent and clear language throughout ASTM 2291 the acceleration task group has decided that figures 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 16 should be changed to say Eyes Front and Eyes Back instead of Eyes In and Eyes Out when referring to accelerations in the X-direction. This updated language is consistent with commonly accepted language (used in peer reviewed publications) when describing the direction of X accelerations and is already used in Figures 6 through 10 within ASTM F2291-11. No other changes have been made to the diagrams.
