Test Method for Measuring the Relative Drapeability of Flexible Insulation Materials
- Ground Vehicle Standard
This SAE Recommended Practice describes a method of determining the relative flexibility of padding and/or acoustical composites.
The purpose of this testing method is to establish a means for measuring the three-dimensional drapeability of flexible insulation materials, such as automotive floor pan insulation composites.
Data Sets - Support Documents
The Acoustical Materials Committee is dedicated to developing, coordinating, reviewing, approving, maintaining and revising documents related to ground vehicle noise and vibration control materials through the participation of material suppliers, part suppliers, system integrators, consultants, test laboratories and ground vehicle manufacturers. Committee activities shall provide a forum for the cooperative interchange of ideas and experience of the participants, resulting in the publication of Standards, Recommended Practices and Information Reports that embody established ground vehicle industry practices and requirements to serve the suppliers and customers of ground vehicle materials. At its discretion, the committee shall also sponsor and support SAE International technical meetings such as conferences, workshops and symposia to further the exchange of information and ideas.
