Things about ASTM-E1233-00: Standard test method for structural performance of exterior windows, curtain walls, and doors by cyclic air pressure differential.
1.1 This test method describes the determination of the structural performance of exterior windows, curtain walls, and doors under cyclic air pressure differential, using a test chamber. This test method is applicable to all curtain wall assemblies, including, but not limited to, metal, glass, masonry, and stone components.
1.2 This test method is intended only for evaluating the structural performance associated with the specified test specimen, and not the structural performance of adjacent construction.
1.3 Procedure A shall be used for life cycle test loads.
1.4 Procedure B shall be used for wind event test loads.
1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
