ASTM WK33302

    New Guide for Evaluating the Relative Effectiveness of Building Systems to Resist the Passage of Products of Combustion Based on the Aggregation of Leakage Rates1

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E05.11 | Committee E05 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide provides a method of evaluating the relative effectiveness of building systems to resist the passage of smoke. 1.2 The method of evaluating the relative effectiveness of a building system is based on the aggregation of leakage rates of openings, penetrations, joints and interfaces of the construction elements forming the building system.


    smoke, penetrations, joints, construction interfaces

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
