    Abstract

    A development study of test methods and criteria for evaluating new roofing materials is described: prefabricated polymeric and elastomeric sheets, prefabricated modified bituminous membranes, and liquid applied membranes. Results are summarized for a number of materials selected as typical of the three groups in order to illustrate the problems and the limitations associated with the different tests.
