Standard Compliance for Vibration Testing of Shipping Containers
The ASTM D999 sustainability package test method covers vibration tests of filled shipping containers. These tests may be used to assess the performance of a container. The interior packing and means of closure will be assessed, both in terms of its strength and of the protection it provides its contents when it is subjected to vibration such as it experiences in transportation.
These package testing laboratory procedures are suitable for testing containers of any form. The material, kind, design of interior packing, means of closure, and any size and weight are all considered. ASTM D999 vibration testing of shipping containers is not intended to determine the response of products to vibration for product design purposes. This vibration testing standard is also not intended for tests of products in their operational configuration. There are other more suitable procedures are available for these purposes.
