ASTM WK40259

    Work Item: ASTM WK40259 - Revision of E1529 - 10 Standard Test Methods for Determining Effects of Large Hydrocarbon Pool Fires on Structural Members and Assemblies

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E1529 - 13

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



    1. Rationale

    Within the Test Method procedures for columns, beams and walls, there are references to alternative procedures for which neither a testing protocol nor endpoint/acceptance criteria is provided within E1529-10. Two of those informational only references are provided as text notes (Notes 6 & 7). The ballot item proposes changing Notes 6 & 7 into new sections: (1) for consistency with the manner in which unloaded columns other than steel is referenced (section 15.2.2), and (2) because Notes 6 & 7 include objectionable mandatory provisions. (ASTMs Form and Style for ASTM Standards states: Notes in the text shall not include mandatory requirements.)
