    ASTM E2127

    Significance and Use

    The procedures described will test the behavior of segments of paneled wall system construction under conditions representative of those encountered in service. Performance criteria based on data from those procedures can verify structural adequacy and service life.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods cover the procedures for determining the resistance of paneled wall systems subjected to combined lateral loads and axial loads.

    1.2 These test methods involve the simultaneous application of transverse (lateral wind) and tensile (wind uplift) loads to paneled wall system assemblies anchored at both ends with hold-down connectors.

    1.3 These test methods are suitable for determining the structural adequacy of the design, system, and wall fabrication technique, and are not intended to evaluate the strength capacity of the hold-down connectors.

    1.4 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.
