Note 1 — Astm e330 applying the results of tests by this test method, note that the performance of a wall or its components, or both, may be a function of fabrication, installation, and adjustment.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory astm e330 prior to use. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

When the structural performance e3330 glass is to be astm e330, the procedure described in Test Method E or E shall be used. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of astm e330 standard. In service, the performance will also depend on the rigidity of supporting construction, temperature, and on the resistance of components to deterioration by various other causes, including vibration, thermal expansion and contraction, etc.

Therefore, the duration of the applied test load may have a significant impact on the performance of materials used in the test specimen. The resistance of many windows, curtain walls, and door assemblies to wind loading is also complex and depends on the complete history of load, magnitude, duration, and repetition. Superimposed on sustained winds are gusting winds which, for short periods of time from a fraction of a second to a few seconds, are capable of moving at considerably higher velocities than the astm e330 winds.

This typically is intended to represent the effects of a wind load on exterior building surface elements. The specimen may or may not truly represent sstm astm e330 of the astm e330 structure.

Combining values from the two systems may astm e330 in non-conformance with the standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.

These notes and astm e330 excluding those in tables and figures shall not be considered as requirements of the standard. The most common examples of materials astm e330 time-dependent response characteristics asttm are used are glass, plastics, and astj that employ plastics.

f330 For this reason, the strength of an assembly is tested for the actual time duration to which it would be exposed to a sustained or a gust load, or both, as discussed above. Astm e330 actual loading on building surfaces is quite complex, varying with wind direction, time, height above ground, building shape, terrain, surrounding structures, and other factors.

For specific hazard statements, see Section 7. Consideration of windborne debris in combination with cyclic air pressure differential astm e330 extreme wind events is addressed in Test Method E and Specification E These wind velocities are translated into uniform asgm air pressure differences and durations acting inward and astm e330.

This test method astm e330 applicable to curtain wall assemblies including, but not limited to, metal, glass, masonry, and stone components. Satm to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. For test loads that represent design loads other than wind, such as snow load, consideration shall be given to establish an appropriate astm e330 period for both design and proof load testing.

Thus a safety factor is incorporated in the testing. Complexities of wind pressures, as related to building design, wind intensity versus astm e330, frequency of occurrence, and other factors must be considered.
