Off-Vehicle Brake Testing for Service Brakes Over 10000 Pounds GVW Air, Hydraulic, and Mechanical Actuation
- Ground Vehicle Standard
Civilian, commercial, military, and militarized-commercial ground-wheeled vehicles such cargo trucks, vocational vehicles, truck tractors, trailers, and specialized support and engineering equipment under the generic heading of ground vehicle “dry” brake systems (GVDBS).
Hydraulic, air, and mechanical “dry” disc brake and drum brake systems, when used as service brakes, including service brakes (only), when used as emergency and/or parking brakes.
Hydraulic, air, and mechanical “dry” disc brake pad assemblies and rotor assemblies.
Hydraulic, air, and mechanical “dry” drum brake shoe assemblies and drum assemblies.
Hydraulic, air, and mechanical brake “block” when intended for use on a. through d. above, except for those vehicles, pad assemblies, and shoe assemblies specifically procured for military use and/or tested under ATPD-2354. It must be noted that the U.S. Government’s Military Services buys only assemblies, and doesn’t normally use “brake block” and relined brake shoes/pads; therefore, testing using separate brake “block” was specifically excluded from ATPD-2354 by the original authors.
