Welcome to CDG Laboratory, your trusted partner in testing services. As a premier laboratory with a commitment to excellence, CDG specializes in a wide range of testing services, and one of our key areas of expertise is the ASTM F1936 test. This test is crucial for evaluating the impact attenuation of turf playing systems as measured in the field. In this comprehensive service page, we will delve into the details of ASTM F1936, its requirements, and how CDG’s unparalleled expertise ensures accurate and reliable testing results.
ASTM F1936 Standard Overview:
ASTM F1936, titled “Standard Specification for Impact Attenuation of Turf Playing Systems as Measured in the Field,” is a vital standard developed by ASTM International. The focus of this standard is to establish the impact attenuation properties of turf playing surfaces, which are commonly used in sports fields, playgrounds, and recreational areas.
The key objective of ASTM F1936 is to assess the ability of turf playing systems to reduce the risk of injury associated with falls. This is achieved by measuring the shock absorption capacity of the surface when subjected to impact, simulating real-world scenarios where individuals might fall during sports or recreational activities.
Requirementsof ASTM F1936:
To meet the specifications outlined in ASTM F1936, turf playing systems must undergo rigorous testing procedures. The standard defines specific requirements and test methods to ensure the accurate evaluation of impact attenuation. Some of the key aspects covered by ASTM F1936 include:
Drop Test Procedure:
ASTM F1936 mandates the use of an instrumented test headform, which simulates the head of an athlete or player.
The test headform is dropped from specified heights onto the turf playing surface.
Measurements are taken to assess the force and acceleration experienced by the headform during impact.
Impact Attenuation Performance Criteria:
The standard establishes performance criteria, defining the maximum allowable values for acceleration and head injury criteria.
Turf playing systems must demonstrate compliance with these criteria to meet the safety standards set by ASTM F1936.
ASTM F1936 outlines specific conditions for testing, including temperature and moisture levels, to ensure consistent and reliable results.
Testing is conducted under both dry and wet conditions to assess the impact attenuation properties of the turf playing surface in various scenarios.
