These notes and footnotes excluding those in tables astm e330 figures shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.

For specific hazard statements, see Section 7. 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 e30 use.

Note 1 — In applying the results of tests by this test method, note that the performance of astm e330 wall astm e330 its components, or both, may be a function of fabrication, installation, and adjustment. This typically is intended to represent the effects of a wind load on exterior building surface elements. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. This test method is applicable to curtain wall assemblies including, but not limited to, metal, glass, masonry, and stone components.

When the structural performance of glass is to be evaluated, the procedure described in Test Method E or E shall be used. Thus a safety factor is astm e330 in the testing.

These wind velocities are translated into uniform static air pressure differences and durations acting inward and outward. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. The most common examples of ast with time-dependent response characteristics that are used are glass, plastics, and composites that employ plastics. In service, the performance will also depend on the rigidity of supporting construction, astm e330, and on the resistance of components to deterioration by various other causes, including astm e330, thermal astm e330 and contraction, etc.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are astm e330 provided as part of the standard. For test loads that represent design adtm 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 astm e330 with cyclic air pressure differential representing extreme wind events is addressed in Test Method E and Specification E Astm e330, the duration of the applied test load may have a significant impact on the performance of materials used in the test specimen. Complexities of wind pressures, as related to building design, wind intensity versus duration, frequency of occurrence, and other factors must be considered.


The values astm e330 in each system astm e330 not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. 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.

The specimen may or may not truly represent every aspect of the actual structure.

Link to Active This link will always astm e330 to the astm e330 Active version of the standard. For this reason, the strength of an assembly is tested for the actual time duration to which it would be exposed to a astm e330 or a gust load, or both, as discussed above. Adtm actual loading on building surfaces is quite complex, varying with wind direction, time, height above ground, building shape, terrain, surrounding structures, and other factors.

Superimposed on sustained winds are gusting winds which, for short periods of time from a fraction of a second to a few seconds, are f330 of astm e330 at considerably higher velocities than the sustained winds.
