Roofing Research and Standards Development: 8th Volume

Editor(s): Sudhakar Molleti, Walter J. Rossiter, Jr.

This special technical publication consists of 11 symposia papers from ASTM International Technical Committee D08 on Roofing and Waterproofing. Committee D08 is the focal point in North America for the development of standards for low-sloped and steep roofing, and also waterproofing. The extent of its activities stretches across the typical categories of ASTM standards including specifications, test methods, practices, and guides. Fortunately, D08 members bring a broad variety of necessary expertise and backgrounds to cover these activities.

Consistent with the broad range of D08 standards activities, the symposium papers assembled in these current Proceedings range from the practical to the fundamental and include:

• Hygrothermal conditions in attic spaces of wooden houses with eaves ventilation
• A test method for a very severe hail rating for low-slope roofing assemblies
• Puncture resistance and accelerated aging of TPO membranes
• Air leakage properties of seam-fastened roof membrane assemblies
• Hygrothermal analysis of pitched-roof underlayment assemblies
• Long-term reflective performance of roof surfaces
• Service-life assessment of 55% Al-Zn alloy-coated steel standing seam roof systems
• Performance of low‐sloped roof structures with varying surface types and ballast layers
• Thermal performance evaluation of roofing details
• Shear resistance of paving and waterproofing systems.
