    Significance and Use

    4.1 The test method provides information regarding the behavior of a non-structural A, B, or C-Class bulkhead panel system under a static load. Test data for load, moment and deformation is measured.

    4.2 Static load test of non-structural marine joiner panel systems provide a standard method of obtaining data for research and development, quality control, acceptance or rejection under specifications, and special purposes. The tests cannot be considered significant for engineering design in applications differing widely from the loading type and magnitude of the standard test. Such applications shall require additional tests.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method describes a procedure for evaluating the strength of non structural marine joiner of A, B, and C-Class bulkhead and liner systems. A, B, and C-class bulkheads are defined and discussed in 2.1.

    1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

    1.3 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.
