Developed by Subcommittee: F08.12
WITHDRAWN, NO REPLACEMENT
This test method covers the measurement of shock absorption characteristics and rebound properties of landing mats and floor exercise surfaces used in the sport of gymnastics. It defines quantitative parameters for these characteristics.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F08 on Sports Equipment and Facilities, this test method was withdrawn without replacement in March 2011 due to inactivity.
1.1 This test method covers the measurement of shock absorption characteristics and rebound properties of landing mats and floor exercise surfaces used in the sport of gymnastics. It defines quantitative parameters for these characteristics.
1.2 This test method is performed under laboratory conditions and requires use of an impact-testing device.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. 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.
