||Expanded Efforts for Packaging Instrumentation Standards
ASTM Committee D10 on Packaging is committed to assessing the suitability of packaging
through quantitative testing and instrumentation.
D 6537, Standard Practice for Instrumented Package Shock Testing for
Determination of Package Performance, was released last year by
Instrumentation Subcommittee D10.16. In April, the committee agreed
to expand the subcommittee with two new task groups: the first
will develop a standard for accelerometer calibration; the second
will create a standard for signal filtering.
The subcommittee expects the proposed standards to be important
documents referenced in several existing D10 methods.
Anyone wishing to participate in or comment on these efforts is
encouraged to contact Subcommittee Chair Bob Boyd, Multimedia Inc., Indianapolis, Ind., or Co-Chair Bill Kipp, Lansmont Corporation, Monterey, Calif. For Committee D10 meeting
