    Significance and Use

    3.1 This practice provides designers/engineers of amusement rides and devices not addressed in the other ASTM Committee F24 standards with design references and criteria to use in design development.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice establishes information and procedures for the design of amusement rides and devices and major modifications to amusement rides and devices which the designer/engineer identifies as outside the purview of other ASTM F24 design standards.

    1.1.1 Prior to designating an amusement ride or device as outside the purview of other ASTM F24 standards and subject to Practice F1159, the designer/engineer shall perform a review of all standards under the jurisdiction of the ASTM Committee F24 addressing amusement ride and device design and determine that Practice F1159 is appropriate and more applicable to the amusement ride or device than other ASTM Committee F24 practices addressing amusement ride and device design.

    1.1.2 In making such a determination, the designer/engineer shall consider the following:

    1.1.2.1 The general nature of the amusement ride or device;

    1.1.2.2 The absence of relevant specific requirements or features addressed by other ASTM Committee F24 practices.

    1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
