The purpose of the test was to conduct a series of impact tests on both ferrous and non-ferrous wheels using the proposed procedure ISO/TC22/SC19/WG3-N15 in order that the nature and extent of failures can be compared, the significance of material strength and ductility can be assessed, and the adaptability to a Federal Standard can be determined. EG&G-AR designed and fabricated the test machine, procured and tested eighteen aluminum and twelve steel wheels.
