Status: inactive
Page Count: 4
ICS Code (Roofs): 91.060.20
significance And Use:

This test method describes simple laboratory methods that provide reproduceable measurements of critical media properties, and permit direct comparisons to be made between different media... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method covers a procedure for determining the maximum media density for purposes of estimating the maximum dead load for green roof assemblies. The method also provides a measure of the moisture content and the water permeability measured at the maximum media density.

1.2 This procedure is suitable for green roof media that contain no more than 30% organic material as measured using the loss on ignition procedure Test Methods F 1647, Method A.

1.3 The maximum media density and associated moisture content measured in this procedure applies to drained conditions near the saturation point.

1.4 The test method is intended to emulate vertical percolation rates for water in green roofs.

1.5 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
