    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



    WK40262

    1. Rationale

    Section 14.6.3 includes a description of wet/freeze/thaw accelerated weathering exposure which specifies simulating rainfall at a rate of 0.7 inch per day. In UL 1709 Appendix A (from which the E1529 language originated),the simulated rainfall is specified at 0.7 inch per hour. It has been confirmed in the Dec 2012 Atlanta meeting that E1529 is incorrect.
