Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
1.1 This test method covers the measurement of the relative resistance of wall, floor, and roof construction to impact loading. The test is not applicable to doors.
1.2 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.
1.3 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.
Significance and Use
4.1 The procedures outlined will provide data that can be used to evaluate the relative performance of wall, floor, and roof constructions under conditions representative of those sustained in actual service when subjected to impact by a heavy blunt object. See Test Method for evaluation of floor and roof sheathing and Practice for evaluation of roof trusses.
4.2 The method is intended to be applied to relatively light construction, including, but not limited to, wood floor and roof systems, partitions framed with wood or steel studs, steel floor or roof decking systems, steel siding and wall panels, or thin concrete and masonry walls or slabs and similar assemblies.
