MIL-P-18526A(SH) Post-shock-test procedure.  The shock tested unit, if it is to be supplied
under a contract or order and if approved by the procuring agency, shall be restored to the
as-new condition by replacement of parts damaged or distorted beyond the as-new design toler-
ances.  Rolling contact bearings shall be replaced regardless of condition.  Shock tested
rolling contact bearings shall be destroyed.  Restored unit shall successfully pass the shop
tests specified in,, and 4.4,1.3, if applicable.  Shop test documentation
shall indicate that the unit was subjected to the shock test and subsequently restored,
shop tested, and examined.  A complete part examination check list shall be supplied and
shall identify the parts which were replaced (such as the bearings) and shall certify that
the unit fully conforms to the specifications for unrestricted service. Pump units shall be shock tested with drivers.  Flexible coupled pumps shock
tested with one driver will not be required to be shock tested again when supplied with a
different driver of equal or less weight subject to approval of the design review agency.
Prime movers shall be subject to shock tests in accordance with the applicable equipment
specifications (see 6.2.1).  Inclined operation test.  Vertical pumps shall be operated for not less than
30 minutes inclined at an angle from the normal equal to the combination of the maximum
permanent list and trim as specified (see 6.2.1)." Horizontal pumps shall be tested in accord-
ance with the inclined operation test specified for the driving unit.  Operation in the
inclined position shall be as close to rated speed and capacity as practicable.  Performance
point shall be indicated in the test report.  Pump shall meet all specified performance
requirements without damage while operating in the inclined position. Vibration test.  When specified (see 6.2.1), one pump of a quantity of identi-
cal pumps being supplied shall successfully undergo a vibration test in accordance with the
requirements of MIL-STD-167-1 and as supplemented in the contract or order.  Vibration test
need not be repeated on subsequent contracts or orders for pumps of identical design to those
previously tested, provided the previous tests included the frequencies specified (see 6.2.1). Unit shall be mounted on typical shipboard foundations during the vibration
test or the shipboard mounting arrangement shall be simulated in springmass characteristics
except where this mounting arrangement causes the largest test table capacity to be exceeded.
Inability to vibration test the unit because of excessive weight or size shall not release
the contractor from furnishing equipment which can withstand the specified vibration inputs.
Vibration test acceptance criteria shall be in accordance with MIL-STD-167-1.
4.5 Test  procedures and test reports.  The contractor shall prepare shop test proce-
dures (see 4.4.
performance evaluation test procedures (see 4.4,2), design evaluation test
procedures (see 4.4.3), and test reports in accordance with the data ordering documents in-
cluded in the contract or order (see 6.2.2) and as specified in 4.5.1 and 4.5.2.
4.5.1 Test reports for the performance evaluation tests shall be compiled `into a single
document.  The document shall identify the pump by manufacturer's serial numbers of pump and
driver, the contract or order number under which the tests were performed, the ship or class
of ships for which the pump is intended, if known, and the letter and data of test procedure
4.5.2 Test reports for the design evaluation tests shall be prepared in accordance with
good engineering practice.  Test arrangement and procedure, and test events, the test in-
struments used, the measured data, and the effects, results, and observations shall be ac-
curate and complete, and shall be presented in a professional manner and in a usable durable
form.  Report shall include a definite statement regarding conformance to the acceptable
criteria specified herein and suitability of the unit for its intended application.  Dis-
tribution of the test reports shall be as follows:
(a) Two to each procuring agency.
(b) Two to one of the following, as applicable:
Defense Contract Administration Semites Region (DCASR).
(2) Defense Contract Administration Services District (DCASD).
(3) Defense Contract Administration Services Office (DCASO).
(c) Two to the design review agency.
4.6 Inspection of  preparation for delivery.  Sample packages and packs and the inspec-
tion of the preservation-packaging, and packing, and marking for shipment and storage shall be
in accordance with the requirements of section 5 and the documents specified therein.
