Other Standards Different Testing Equipment Should Meet

Other Shock Testing Standards


  • EN / IEC 61373 Shock Testing Standards

EN 61373 specifies the requirements for testing items of equipment intended for use on railway vehicles which are subsequently subjected to vibrations and shock owing to the nature of the railway operational environment. To gain assurance that the quality of the equipment is acceptable, it has to withstand tests of reasonable duration that simulate the service conditions seen throughout its expected life.


  • RTCA/DO-160G Shock Testing Standards

Section 7 Operational Shocks and Crash Safety The operational shock test verifies that the equipment will continue to function within performance standards after exposure to shocks experienced during normal aircraft operations. These shocks may occur during taxiing, landing, or when the aircraft encounters sudden gusts in flight. This test applies to all equipment installed on fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. Two operational shock test curves are provided; a standard 11 ms pulse and a low frequency 20ms pulse. The 20 ms pulse may not be adequate to test against the effect of longer duration shocks on equipment that have its lowest resonance frequency (as per section 8) below 100Hz. For such equipment, a pulse of 100 ms duration should be considered.


The crash safety test verifies that certain equipment will not detach from its mountings or separate in a manner that presents a hazard during an emergency landing. It applies to equipment installed in compartments and other areas of the aircraft where equipment detached during an emergency landing could present a hazard to occupants, fuel systems, or emergency evacuation equipment. These tests do not satisfy FAR requirements for all equipment, e.g. seats and seat restraints.


Other Vibration Testing Standards


  • EN / IEC 61373 Vibration Testing Standards

EN 61373 specifies the requirements for testing items of equipment intended for use on railway vehicles which are subsequently subjected to vibrations and shock owing to the nature of the railway operational environment. To gain assurance that the quality of the equipment is acceptable, it has to withstand tests of reasonable duration that simulate the service conditions seen throughout its expected life.


  • RTCA/DO-160G Vibration Testing Standards

These tests demonstrate that the equipment complies with the applicable equipment performance standards (including durability requirements) when subjected to vibration levels specified for the appropriate installation. The vibration tests described below apply to equipment installed on the fixed-wing propeller, aircraft, fixed-wing turbojet, turbofan, and propfan aircraft and helicopters. 


The specific vibration tests to be performed to show compliance with the performance standards are defined in this paragraph and are dependent upon three identifiers: (1) aircraft type, (2) test category, and (3) aircraft zone location. The requirements and procedures to accomplish these tests are specified in subsequent paragraphs herein.


Motion Simulation Testing Standards


  • AC156 Motion Simulation Testing Standards

Triaxial Test: A dynamic test in which the test specimen is subjected to acceleration in two principal horizontal axes and the vertical axis simultaneously. The two horizontal and the vertical acceleration components are derived from three different input signals that are phase-incoherent.
