Standard Test Methods for Determining Structural Capacities of Insulated Panels
|Publication Date:||10 April 1999|
|ICS Code (Thermal and sound insulating materials):||91.100.60|
1.1 These test methods cover procedures for determining strength and stiffness properties under specified loads of prefabricated insulated panels. These specified loads include:
1.1.1 Transverse loads,
1.1.2 Axial loads,
1.1.3 Shear loads,
1.1.4 Uplift loads,
1.1.5 Cold creep,
1.1.6 Impact loads, and
1.1.7 Concentrated loads.
1.2 Structural insulated panels are intended for use in permanent building structures.
1.3 These test methods are not intended for quality control purposes and does not evaluate the individual components of the structural insulated panels.
1.4 These test methods are not intended to measure dimensional stability.
1.5 The text of this standard references notes and footnotes, excluding tables and figures, which provide explanatory information. These notes and footnotes shall not be considered requirements of the 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 determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
