|ICS Code (Walls. Partitions. Façades):||91.060.10|
This document specifies test methods for the determination of bearing capacity (ultimate limit state and serviceability limit state), of connections between curtain walling framing members which cannot be calculated in accordance with current codes or conventional calculations based upon the strength of the materials.
Mechanical performances of the curtain walling connections are already assessed in accordance with the provisions described in EN 13830. Additional information with respect to mechanical performance of the connections and direct applications can be determined with this document (see Annex C).
