ASTM WK48879

    Revision of F2291 - 14 Standard Practice for Design of Amusement Rides and Devices

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F2291 - 17

    Developed by Subcommittee: F24.24 | Committee F24 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    In order to keep ASTM F2291 harmonized with the EN 13814:2004 (E) and ISO/TS 17929:2014 standards, the G-Force Task Group recommends that Figure 2 be replaced. I have included the old figure and the new figure so you can see the changes. These changes are chiefly: 1.The At rest note has been changed for clarity. 2.The triangular area in Area 1 near (-0.2Gx, +0.7Gz) has been moved from Area 1 to Area 2. 3.The Area 5 boundary at -1.8 Gz was added back to the figure because it was inadvertently omitted in the 2011 update of this figure.
