New Test Method for Response of a deck assembly to an under-deck flame impingement exposure

1. Scope

Evaluate the response of a deck assembly subjected to an under-deck flame impingement exposure. Deck assembly will be placed in a wind field.


wildfire, deck, deck boards, wood, plastic composite, flames


Recent research has demonstrated limitations in the currently approved test method. The proposed test method will address these limitations by increasing deck size, wind speed, and evaluating joist and deck boards used in the deck assembly.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
