Practice C may be used as a guide for test specimen conditioning. These data show that reductions in heat transfer across the building enclosure c163 be effectively reduced by the use of enclosed reflective air spaces and attic radiant barriers.

This test method applies to building structures or composite assemblies of building materials for which it is possible to build a representative specimen that fits the test apparatus.

The data are needed to judge compliance with specifications and regulations, for design guidance, for research evaluations of the effect of changes in materials or constructions, and for verification of, or use in, simulation models.

For the results to be representative of a building construction, only representative sections shall be tested. Assurance Testing Inspection Certification. It’s easy to model one-dimensional conductive heat flow, but modeling three-dimensional heat transfer is much more difficult and less reliable.

It accommodates test specimens up to 9 feet by 16 feet. Reflective technology increases the overall thermal resistance of the building enclosure when used to insulate poured concrete structures. Please enter a valid email address.

The preconditioning parameters shall be chosen to accurately reflect the test samples intended use and shall be documented in the report. The operation of a hot box apparatus requires a significant number of fundamental measurements of temperatures, areas and power. If the document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email. The guarded hot box consists of a cold room and a warm room.


Air infiltration or moisture migration can alter the net v1363 transfer. This method is also used to measure the thermal performance of a building material at standardized test conditions such as those required in material Specifications CCC and Practice C Detailed design of that type of apparatus is beyond the scope of this method.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Certification Formally confirming that your products and services meet all trusted external and internal standards. This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions.

However, several hot box apparatuses have been operated under dynamic non-steady-state conditions after additional characterization 1. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Decisions on material sampling, specimen selection, preconditioning, specimen mounting and positioning, the choice of test conditions, and the evaluation of test data shall follow applicable ASTM test methods, guides, practices or product specifications or governmental regulations.

Since this test method is used to determine the total heat flow through the test area demarcated by the metering box, it is possible to determine the heat flow through a building element smaller than the test area, such as a window or representative area of a panel unit, if the parallel heat flow through the remaining surrounding area is independently determined.

The warm room is enclosed within a second room, known as the guard sstm, with the same heating capabilities. Discussion of all special conditions used during the test shall be included in the test report see Section Evaluating how your products and services meet and exceed quality, safety, sustainability and performance standards.

Large-Scale Hot Box

The general testing procedures for these cases are described in Annex A We’d be happy to work with you to conduct custom thermal testing for your residential building system. Second, each building material has different thermal conductivity and some materials, especially the wood xstm members, are not uniformly distributed through the assembled wall system. Some hot boxes are limited to planar or nearly planar specimens.


Other orientations are also permitted. Complicated interactions and dependence upon many variables, coupled with only a limited experience in testing under such conditions, have made it inadvisable to include this type testing in this standard.

Scientific Research An Academic Publisher. As such, the hot box is considered a primary method and the uncertainty of the result is analyzed by direct axtm of the component measurement uncertainties of the instrumentation used in making the measurements. Many high performance wall systems now also have a layer of rigid foam.

The report shall contain a warning stating that the use of the barriers might modify c1633 heat transfer through the system causing significant errors. The preconditioning parameters shall be chosen to accurately reflect the test samples intended use and shall be documented in the 1c363.

ASTM C1363

As we know from the Second Law of Thermodynamics, energy moves from hot towards cold. When constructed to measure heat transfer in the vertical direction, the hot box is used for testing roof, ceiling, floor, and other horizontal structures. These panels, or representative sections of the panels, have had their thermal performance measured on other devices that are directly traceable or have been favorably compared to a national standards laboratory.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

Detailed designs conforming to this standard are not given but must be developed within the constraints of the general requirements. Trends Leading the way with innovative, fresh ideas for builders and manufacturers. The same apparatus may be used in several orientations but may require special design capability to permit repositioning to each orientation. Additional characterization is required to insure that all aspects of the heat flow and storage are accounted for during the test.

See Annex A8 for the general method. The direction of airflow motion under forced convective conditions shall be either perpendicular or parallel to the surface.
