The most commonly used measures of acceptance and preference will be covered, that is, product liking overall as measured by the nine-point hedonic scale and preference measured by choice, either two-alternative forced choice or two-alternative with a “no preference” option. 1.2  Three of the biggest challenges in measuring a product’s hedonic (overall liking or acceptability) or choice status (preference selection) are determining how many respondents and who to include in the respondent sample, setting up the questioning sequence, and interpreting the data to make product decisions. 1.3  This guide covers: 1.3.1  Definition of each type of measure, 1.3.2  Discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of each, 1.3.3  When to use each, 1.3.4  Practical considerations in test execution, 1.3.5  Risks associated with each, 1.3.6  Relationship between the two when administered in the same test, and 1.3.7  Recommended interpretations of results for product decisions. 1.4  The intended audience for this guide is the sensory consumer professional or marketing research professional (“the researcher”) who is designing, executing, and interpreting data from product tests with acceptance or choice measures, or both. 1.5  Only two-sample product tests will be covered in this guide. However, the issues and recommended practices raised in this guide often apply to multi-sample tests as well. Detailed coverage of execution tactics, optional types of scales, various approaches to data analysis, and extensive discussions of the reliability and validity of these measures are all outside of the scope of this guide. 1.6  Units— The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. 1.7  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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. 1.8  This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.


ASTM E355-96(2021)e1

Standard Practice for Gas Chromatography Terms and Relationships

1.1 Â This practice covers primarily the terms and relationships used in gas elution chromatography. However, most of the terms should also apply to other kinds of gas chromatography and are also valid in the various liquid column chromatographic techniques, although at this time they are not standardized for the latter usage. 1.2 Â This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.


ASTM E467-21

Standard Practice for Verification of Constant Amplitude Dynamic Forces in an Axial Fatigue Testing System

1.1 Â This practice covers procedures for the dynamic verification of cyclic force amplitude control or measurement accuracy during constant amplitude testing in an axial fatigue testing system. It is based on the premise that force verification can be done with the use of a strain gaged elastic element. Use of this practice gives assurance that the accuracies of forces applied by the machine or dynamic force readings from the test machine, at the time of the test, after any user applied correction factors, fall within the limits recommended in Section 9 . It does not address static accuracy which must first be addressed using Practices E4 or equivalent. 1.2 Â Verification is specific to a particular test machine configuration and specimen. This standard is recommended to be used for each configuration of testing machine and specimen. Where dynamic correction factors are to be applied to test machine force readings in order to meet the accuracy recommended in Section 9 , the verification is also specific to the correction process used. Finally, if the correction process is triggered or performed by a person, or both, then the verification is specific to that individual as well. 1.3 Â It is recognized that performance of a full verification for each configuration of testing machine and specimen configuration could be prohibitively time consuming and/or expensive. Annex A1 provides methods for estimating the dynamic accuracy impact of test machine and specimen configuration changes that may occur between full verifications. Where test machine dynamic accuracy is influenced by a person, estimating the dynamic accuracy impact of all individuals involved in the correction process is recommended. This practice does not specify how that assessment will be done due to the strong dependence on owner/operators of the test machine. 1.4 Â This practice is intended to be used periodically. Consistent results between verifications is expected. Failure to obtain consistent results between verifications using the same machine configuration implies uncertain accuracy for dynamic tests performed during that time period. 1.5 Â This practice addresses the accuracy of the testing machine's force control or indicated forces, or both, as compared to a dynamometer's indicated dynamic forces. Force control verification is only applicable for test systems that have some form of indicated force peak/valley monitoring or amplitude control. For the purposes of this verification, the dynamometer's indicated dynamic forces will be considered the true forces. Phase lag between dynamometer and force transducer indicated forces is not within the scope of this practice. 1.6 Â The results of either the Annex A1 calculation or the full experimental verification must be reported per Section 10 of this standard. 1.7 Â This practice provides no assurance that the shape of the actual waveform conforms to the intended waveform within any specified tolerance. 1.8 Â This standard is principally focused at room temperature operation. It is believed there are additional issues that must be addressed when testing at high temperatures. At the present time, this standard practice must be viewed as only a partial solution for high temperature testing. 1.9 Â The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. 1.10 Â 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. 1.11 Â This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.



ASTM E523-21e1

Standard Test Method for Measuring Fast-Neutron Reaction Rates by Radioactivation of Copper

1.1  This test method covers procedures for measuring reaction rates by the activation reaction 63 Cu(n,α) 60 Co. The cross section for 60 Co produced in this reaction increases rapidly with neutrons having energies greater than about 4.5 MeV. 60 Co decays with a half-life of 5.2711(8) 2 years ( 1 ) 3 , 4 and emits two gamma rays having energies of 1.173228(3) and 1.332492(4) MeV ( 1 ) . The isotopic content of natural copper is 69.174(20) % 63 Cu and 30.826(20) % 65 Cu ( 2 ) . The neutron reaction, 63 Cu(n,γ) 64 Cu, produces a radioactive product that emits gamma rays [1.34577(6) MeV ( E1005 )] which might interfere with the counting of the 60 Co gamma rays. 1.2  With suitable techniques, fission-neutron fluence rates above 10 9 cm −2 ·s −1 can be determined. The 63 Cu(n,α) 60 Co reaction can be used to determine fast-neutron fluences for irradiation times up to about 15 years, provided that the analysis methods described in Practice E261 are followed. If dosimeters are analyzed after irradiation periods longer than 15 years, the information inferred about the fluence during irradiation periods more than 15 years before the end of the irradiation should not be relied upon without supporting data from dosimeters withdrawn earlier. 1.3  Detailed procedures for other fast-neutron detectors are referenced in Practice E261 . 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. 1.5  This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.


ASTM F1650-21

Standard Practice for Evaluating Tire Traction Performance Data Under Varying Test Conditions

1.1  This practice covers the required procedures for examining sequential control tire data for any variation due to changing test conditions. Such variations may influence absolute and also comparative performance of candidate tires, as they are tested over any short or extended time period. The variations addressed in this practice are systematic or bias variations and not random variations. See Appendix X1 for additional details. 1.1.1  Two types of variation may occur: time or test sequence “trend variations,” either linear or curvilinear, and the less common transient or abrupt shift variations. If any observed variations are declared to be statistically significant, the calculation procedures are given to correct for the influence of these variations. This approach is addressed in Method A. 1.2  In some testing programs, a policy is adopted to correct all candidate traction test data values without the application of a statistical routine to determine if a significant trend or shift is observed. This option is part of this practice and is addressed in Method B. 1.3  The issue of rejecting outlier data points or test values that might occur among a set of otherwise acceptable data values obtained under identical test conditions in a short time period is not part of this practice. Specific test method or other outlier rejection standards that address this issue may be used on the individual data sets prior to applying this practice and its procedures. 1.4  Although this practice applies to various types of tire traction testing (for example, dry, wet, snow, ice), the procedures as given in this practice may be used for any repetitive tire testing in an environment where test conditions are subject to change. 1.5  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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. 1.6  This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.

Soil quality. Test for measuring the inhibition of reproduction in oribatid mites (Oppia nitens) exposed to contaminants in soil (British Standard)

This document specifies one of the methods for evaluating the habitat function of soils and determining effects of soil contaminants and individual chemical substances on the reproduction of the oribatid mite Oppia nitens by dermal and alimentary uptake. This chronic (28-day) test is applicable to soils and soil materials of unknown quality (e.g., contaminated sites, amended soils, soils after remediation, agricultural or other sites under concern and waste materials). This method is not intended to replace the earthworm or Collembola tests since it represents another taxonomic group (= mites; i.e., arachnids), nor the predatory mite test since this species represents a different trophic level and ecological niche. Effects of substances are assessed using standard soil, preferably a defined artificial soil substrate. For contaminated soils, the effects are determined in the test soil and in a control soil. According to the objective of the study, the control and dilution substrate (dilution series of contaminated soil) should be either an uncontaminated soil with similar properties to the soil sample to be tested (reference soil) or a standard soil (e.g., artificial soil). Information is provided on how to use this method for testing substances under temperate conditions. This document is not applicable to substances for which the air/soil partition coefficient is greater than 1, or to substances with vapour pressure exceeding 300 Pa at 25 °C. NOTE The stability of the test substance cannot be assured over the test period. No provision is made in the test method for monitoring the persistence of the substance under test.

Health Informatics. Interoperability and integration reference architecture. Model and framework (British Standard)

This document enables the advancement of interoperability from the data/information exchange paradigm to knowledge sharing at decreasing level of abstraction, starting at IT concept level (semantic coordination) through business domain concept level (agreed service function level cooperation), domain level (cross-domain cooperation) up to individual context (skills-based end-user collaboration). The document defines a model and framework for a harmonized representation of existing or intended systems with a specific focus on ICT-supported business systems. The Interoperability and Integration Reference Architecture supports ontology harmonization or knowledge harmonization to enable interoperability between, and integration of, systems, standards and solutions at any level of complexity without the demand for continuously adapting/revising those specifications. The approach can be used for analysing, designing, integrating, and running any type of systems. For realizing advanced interoperability, flexible, scalable, business-controlled, adaptive, knowledge-based, intelligent health and social ecosystems need to follow a systems-oriented, architecture-centric, ontology-based and policy-driven approach. The languages for representing the different views on systems such as ontology languages like Common Logic (CL) (ISO/IEC 24707 [24] ) and Web Ontology Language (OWL) [25] – specifically OWL 2 [26] (World Wide Web Consortium (W3C®), languages for modeling and integrating business processes like Business Process Modeling Language (BPML) (OMG®), but also OMG’s Unified Modeling Language (UML, also specified as ISO/IEC 19505 [27] ) based representation styles for the different ISO/IEC 10746 (all parts) views are outside the scope of this document.
