ASTM D3787 determines the measurement for bursting strength with a ball burst strength tester of textiles or garments that exhibit a high degree of ultimate elongation. ASTM D3787 is used to determine the force required to rupture textile fabric by forcing a steel ball through the fabric with a constant-rate-of-traverse tensile tester.
