Standard Test Method for Blast Resistance of Trash Receptacles

2017-08-16 /Historical
Superseeded by:
Significance and Use:

This test procedure is used to measure two effects of an explosive detonated in a trash receptacle as related to the type and amount of explosive charge and the location where the charge is placed in the trash receptacle. The two sources of damage are from:

Primary and secondary fragments due to the detonation, and

Overpressure from the detonation.

This test procedure is also used to document the physical damage to the trash receptacle due to explosion.

This test procedure is applicable to all trash receptacles, including lidded or non-lidded as supplied by the manufacturer.

This test procedure is used to generate data for use in developing performance specifications for trash receptacles.


1.1 This test method provides a procedure for characterizing the performance of a trash receptacle when an explosive is detonated within the receptacle.

1.1.1 The procedure measures the magnitude of blast waves (that is, external overpressures) developed and determines the extent and location of fragmentation produced during the explosion.

1.1.2 Effects due to a fireball resulting from the detonation of an explosive within a trash receptacle are beyond the scope of the test method.

1.2 This test method is intended to be performed in open-air test arenas.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values stated in parentheses are for information only.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
