    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This practice defines the procedure to expose a solar thermal collector to an outdoor or simulated outdoor environment in a nonoperational model. The procedure provides for periodic inspections and a post-exposure disassembly and inspection of the collector.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E44 on Solar, Geothermal and Alternative Engergy Sources and the direct responsibility of Subcommittee E44.05 on Solar Heating and Cooling Subsystems and Systems, this practice was withdrawn in January 2010 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope
