Scope:

This SAE Recommended Practice establishes a uniform laboratory test method to evaluate the strength characteristics of roof systems. The test procedure is intended to provide reliable and repeatable results and to permit numerical comparisons. A test is conducted in which the vehicle roof system is loaded under controlled laboratory conditions. Structural strength measurements are obtained under load application angles chosen to concentrate forces on the forward portions of the roof panel and roof supporting structure.

Rationale:

This procedure is superceded in the industry by the FMVSS 216 - Roof Crush Resistance. As there is no value added to the community in simply updating this to be consistent with FMVSS 216, the document should be Stabilized and retained for its historical reference only.
