The uses and limitations of procedures designed to characterize and correct for load-time attenuation occurring during dynamic impact testing are described. The importance of wave form, time to maximum load, and load decay time are considered. It is shown that, within certain bounds, wave form attenuation calibration procedures can be used as a means of correcting data which contains excess filtering.
