ASTM F2117: Understanding the Standard
ASTM F2117 is a vital standard developed by ASTM International, a globally recognized leader in the development and delivery of voluntary consensus standards. This particular standard addresses the vertical rebound characteristics of sports surfaces and ball systems, providing a comprehensive methodology for testing and evaluating their performance.
Purpose of ASTM F2117
The primary objective of ASTM F2117 is to assess how sports surfaces interact with balls, particularly focusing on the rebound characteristics. These characteristics play a crucial role in determining the overall performance and safety of sports surfaces, impacting the gameplay and minimizing the risk of injuries.
Key Components of ASTM F2117
- Test Apparatus: The standard outlines the specifications for the apparatus used in testing, ensuring uniformity and accuracy across different testing facilities.
- Test Procedure: ASTM F2117 provides a step-by-step procedure for conducting the test, including the method of dropping the ball, recording measurements, and calculating rebound characteristics.
- Calculations: The standard defines specific calculations to determine the rebound resilience, coefficient of restitution, and other key parameters critical for evaluating the sports surface and ball system.
- Reporting: ASTM F2117 emphasizes clear and concise reporting of test results, facilitating effective communication between testing laboratories, manufacturers, and end-users.
