This typically is intended to represent the effects of a wind load on exterior building surface elements. The resistance of many windows, curtain walls, and door assemblies to wind loading is also complex and depends on the astm e330 history of load, magnitude, duration, and astm e330. Therefore, the duration of the applied test load may have a significant impact on the performance of materials used in the test specimen.

Thus a safety factor is incorporated in the testing. Consideration of windborne debris in combination with cyclic air pressure differential representing extreme wind events is addressed in Test Method E astm e330 Specification E The specimen may or may not truly represent every aspect of the actual structure. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of astm e330 other.


This test astm e330 is applicable to curtain wall assemblies including, but not limited to, metal, glass, masonry, and stone components. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

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

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the astm e330. When the structural performance of glass is to be evaluated, the procedure described in Test Method E or E shall be used.

The most common examples of materials with time-dependent response characteristics that are used are glass, plastics, and composites that employ plastics. It is the astm e330 of the user astm e330 this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

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. For test astm e330 that represent design loads other than wind, such as snow load, consideration shall be given to establish an appropriate test period for both design and astm e330 load testing.


For specific hazard statements, see Section 7. Complexities of aetm pressures, as related astm e330 building design, wind intensity versus duration, frequency of occurrence, and other factors must be considered.

astm e330 These wind velocities are translated into uniform static air pressure differences and durations acting inward and outward. Astm e330 values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. The actual loading on building surfaces is quite complex, varying with wind direction, time, height above ground, building shape, terrain, surrounding structures, and other factors.

In service, the performance will astm e330 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. astm e330
