Revision of E2307-20 Standard Test Method for Determining Fire Resistance of Perimeter Fire Barriers Using Intermediate-Scale, Multi-story Test Apparatus


The calibration procedure contained within ASTM E2307 contains two technical errors in the description of the placement of the heat flux gauges. The first error, or confusingly worded description, involves the orientation of the heat flux gauges with respect to the calibration wall, apparatus burners and testing facility. The second error involves the physical location in reference to the exterior face thermocouples.
