    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers a procedure for performing tests on loaded shipping containers by means of the revolving drum tester to determine the relative ability of a shipping container to withstand rough handling.

    1.2 This test method is used to give an indication of the ability of a shipping container to withstand a variety of shocks and impact stresses, usually for permitting a comparison of different designs of containers of the same size and carrying the same load. This test method permits an observation of the progressive destruction or failure of the package, through which means of improving the design may be determined. The drum test is not intended to simulate any specific environmental hazard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.
