For this reason, the strength of an assembly is tested for the actual time duration astm e330 which it ee330 be exposed to a sustained or a gust load, or both, as discussed above.

The specimen astm e330 or may not truly represent every aspect of the actual structure. For specific hazard statements, see Section 7.

For test loads that represent design loads other than wind, such as snow load, consideration shall be given to establish astm e330 appropriate test period for both design and proof load testing. Consideration of windborne debris in combination with cyclic air pressure differential representing extreme wind events is addressed in Test Method E and Specification E Therefore, the astm e330 of the applied test load may have a significant impact on the performance of materials used in the test specimen.

The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system astm e330 be used independently astm e330 the other. The most common examples of materials with time-dependent response characteristics that are used are glass, plastics, and composites that employ plastics.

When the astm e330 performance of glass is to be evaluated, the procedure described in Test Method E or E shall be used. This test method is applicable to curtain wall assemblies including, but not limited to, metal, glass, masonry, and stone components. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

These wind astm e330 are translated into uniform static air pressure differences and durations acting inward and outward. These notes and footnotes excluding those in tables and figures shall not astm e330 considered as requirements of the standard.

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. Note 1 — In 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. Link to Active This link will always route astm e330 the current Active version of the standard.

astm e330 Complexities of wind pressures, as astm e330 to building design, wind intensity versus duration, frequency of occurrence, and other factors must be considered. 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.

Superimposed on sustained winds are gusting winds which, for short periods of time astm e330 a fraction of a second to a few seconds, are capable of astm e330 at considerably higher velocities than the sustained winds.

This typically is intended to represent the effects of a wind load on exterior building surface elements.

Thus a safety factor is incorporated in the astm e330. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

The actual e33 on building surfaces is quite complex, astm e330 with wind direction, time, height above ground, building shape, terrain, surrounding structures, and other factors.
