Section 17 - Unit Drop Test - Dynamic

This test is used to evaluate the sample for an impact force on the leg or base that could occur perhaps if the sample was being moved and then accidentally dropped. The test does not apply to samples with pedestal bases. Each end of the sample will be picked up to a desired height separately and then dropped for a freefall. The drop height will be determined in relation to the weight of the sample.
