San Diego International Airport - Lindbergh Field - Terminal 2 Expansion
ASTM E 1105-00 (2008) "Standard Test Method for Field Determination of Water Penetration of Installed Exterior Windows, Skylights, Doors and Curtain Walls, by Uniform or Cyclic Static Air Pressure Difference"
The test Standard is designed to produce a continuous and uniform film of water across the exterior surface of the test specimen. The testing apparatus is calibrated to produce a specific amount of water per square foot, per hour, over the specimen surface area.
An interior negative air pressure chamber, approved by the project engineer, that simulates the pressure dynamics of a wind-driven rain is constructed and connected to the interior surface of the window-wall interface, then accurately depressurized to meet the product or Engineering Specification.
AAMA 502-12 "Voluntary Specification for Field Testing of Newly Installed Fenestration Products" This is a manufacturers association modification of the ASTM E 1105-00 test Standard using reduced test pressure.
ASTM E 783-02 (2010) "Standard Test Method for Field Measurement of Air Leakage Through Installed Exterior Windows and Doors"
This test utilizes the apparatus used in the ASTM E 1105 test to accurately depressurize an interior pressure chamber then measure the amount of air movement through the test specimen.
AAMA 503-08 "Voluntary Specification for Field Testing of Newly Installed Storefronts, Curtain Walls and Sloped Glazing Systems"
This is a manufacturers association modification of the ASTM E 1105-00 test Standard using reduced test pressure.
AAMA 501.2 "Quality Assurance and Diagnostic Water Leakage Field Check of Installed Storefronts, Curtain Walls, and Sloped Glazing Systems"
Using a calibrated handheld device, water is applied on the exterior of the test specimen, to the assembly and glazing junctures, at a calibrated rate without negative pressure.
