ASTM - D7033

Standard Practice for Establishing Design Capacities for Oriented Strand Board (OSB) Wood-Based Structural-Use Panels

active, Most Current
Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 May 2014
Status: active
Page Count: 9
ICS Code (Wood-based panels in general): 79.060.01
scope:

This practice covers the basis for code recognition of design capacities for OSB structural-use panels. Procedures are provided to establish or re-evaluate design capacities for OSB structural-use panels. Procedures for sampling and testing are also provided. Design values stated as capacity per unit dimension are to be regarded as standard. Design capacities developed in accordance with this practice are applicable to panels intended for use in dry in-service conditions.

NOTE 1-This practice is based on ICC-ES Acceptance Criteria AC-182. Relative to the scope of AC-182, this practice is limited to OSB panels.

NOTE 2-While this practice makes reference to PS-2, this practice applies similarly to products certified to other standards such as CAN/ CSA O325.

NOTE 3-OSB produced under PS-2 is rated with the "Exposure 1" bond classification. Exposure 1 panels covered by PS-2 are intended for dry use applications where the in-service equilibrium moisture content conditions are expected to be less than 16 %. Exposure 1 panels are intended to resist the effects of moisture due to construction delays, or other conditions of similar severity. Guidelines on use of OSB are available from manufacturers and qualified agencies.

NOTE 4-PS-2-10 replaced the use of nominal thicknesses with a classification term known as Performance Category, which is defined in PS-2 as "A panel designation related to the panel thickness range that is linked to the nominal panel thickness designations used in the International Building Code (IBC) and International Residential Code (IRC)." Therefore, the PS-2 Performance Category should be considered equivalent to the term "nominal thickness" used within this standard.
