TOP-1-2-621, TEST OPERATIONS PROCEDURE: OUTDOOR SAND AND DUST TESTING (06-FEB-2009)., This TOP provides guidance for conducting sand and dust tests using an outdoor test facility. Outdoor facilities are required when a chamber test is not feasible due to test article size and/or chamber size limitations. Two procedures are described. One approximates the sand test guidance outlined in Military Standard (MIL-STD)-810G. The second method is offered as an alternative and attempts to meet both sand and dust test requirements in one test; i.e., sand and dust are mixed at concentrations approximating MIL-STD-810 test levels. This document describes some of the instrumentation, test equipment, and data collection and processing procedures.
