Significance and Use
This practice provides a standard procedure for reporting data and results of structural tests used for building constructions, elements, corrections, and assemblies. It enumerates and discusses the report sections required to report data from test methods and practices. The written reports will describe the products tested, method of testing, and results.
1.1 This practice covers general use in reporting structural performance tests of building constructions, elements, connections, and assemblies. A comprehensive report describing the conditions under which the structural data were recorded will enable other workers to reproduce the test methods and, as nearly as possible, the results for each material or assembly, and to reconcile differences that might be found in tests by others.
1.2 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.
