Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 January 1984
Status: inactive
Page Count: 9
ICS Code (Glass in building): 81.040.20
scope:

1. Scope

1.1 This test method is a procedure to determine if the probability of failure of glass specimens exposed to a specified 60-s duration equivalent design load meets specified requirements.

1.2 This test method describes apparatus and procedures to select and apply a 60-s duration proof load to glass specimens, to determine the number of glass specimens to be tested, and to evaluate statistically the probability of failure. This test method may be conducted using the standard test frame specified herein or a test frame of the user's design.

1.3 Proper use of this test method requires a knowledge of the principles of pressure measurement and an understanding of recommended glazing practices.

1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard.

1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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. Specific precautionary statements are given in Section 6.
