Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Superimposed on the averaged winds are gusts whose aggregation, for short periods of time ranging from fractions of seconds to a few seconds may move at considerably higher speeds than the averaged winds. Specific hazard statements are given in Section 7. Thus, there are two options in designing buildings for windstorms with windborne debris: Gust wind loads are of relatively short duration.

Certain values contained in reference documents cited herein may be stated in inch-pound units and must be converted by the user. This test method is applicable to the design of entire fenestration or impact protection systems assemblies and their installation.

S1886 can increase the net outward acting pressure by a factor as high as two. A missile propulsion device, an air pressure system, and a test chamber are used to model some conditions which may be representative of windborne debris and pressures in a windstorm environment.

Specific hazard statements are given in Section 7. The latter approach reduces the likelihood of exposing the building contents to the weather.

ASTM E – Farabaugh Engineering and Testing

This test method is applicable to the design of entire fenestration or impact protection systems assemblies and their installation. Windstorm damage investigations have shown that the effects of windborne debris, followed by the effects of repeated or cyclic wind loading, were a major factor in building damage Certain values contained in reference documents cited herein may be stated in inch-pound units and must be converted by the user.

A missile propulsion device, an air pressure system, and a test chamber are used to model some conditions which may be representative of windborne debris and pressures in a windstorm environment. However, if doors and windows and their supports are designed to resist specified loads and the glass is protected by a screen or barrier, they need not be considered openings. They are not to be specified for the purpose of testing the adequacy of the assembly to remain unbreached in a windstorm environment following impact by windborne debris.

As demonstrated by windstorm damage investigations, windborne debris is present in hurricanes and has caused a significant amount of damage to building envelopes The performance determined by this test method relates to the ability of elements of the building envelope to remain unbreached during a windstorm. Typical debris in hurricanes consists of missiles including, but not limited to, roof gravel, roof tiles, signage, portions of damaged structures, framing lumber, roofing materials, and sheet metal 4, 7, 9.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within e8186 subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The performance determined by this test method relates to the ability of elements of the building envelope to remain unbreached during a windstorm.

Note 1 — Exception: Design pressures based on wind speeds with a mean recurrence interval usually 25 to years that relates to desired levels of structural reliability and are appropriate for the type and importance of the building 1.

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. It is appropriate to test the strength of the assembly for a time duration representative of sustained winds and gusts in a windstorm.

Wind pressures related to building design, wind intensity versus duration, frequency of occurrence, and other factors are considered.

Other test methods, such as Test Methods E and E, do not model gust loadings. The damage caused by windborne debris during windstorms goes beyond failure of building envelope components such as windows, doors, and curtain walls. The resistance of fenestration or impact protective systems assemblies to wind loading after impact depends upon product design, installation, load magnitude, duration, and repetition. When the windward wall of a building is breached, the internal pressure in the building increases, resulting in increased outward acting pressure on the other walls and the roof.

ASTM E1886

However, these test methods do not account for other factors such as impact from windborne w1886 followed by fluctuating pressures associated with a severe windstorm environment. Active view current version of standard. Breaching of the envelope exposes a building’s contents to the damaging effects of continued wind and rain 1, The 1e886 in-service performance of fenestration assemblies and impact protective systems in areas prone to severe windstorms is dependent on many factors.

The missiles and their associated velocity ranges used in this test method are selected to reasonably represent typical debris produced by windstorms.
