PV modules has created a standard material-level test to assess the expected optical performance of encapsulation at its interface with the PV cell. The protocol, colloquially known as the “transmittance standard,” describes the measurement of optical transmittance and subsequent analysis of pλ, YI, and cUV λ E. Standard Method for Building Enclosure Airtightness Compliance Testing 1. Designation To be designated once sent to ASTM. 2. Scope This standard test method provides a quantitative field-test procedure and calculation method for assessing compliance of a building enclosure with an airtightness specification using fan-induced pressure.

Discussion—Thermal transmittance is expressed as watts per square metre of test specimen per kelvin difference between the hot plate and the cool atmosphere (W/m2K). Thermal transmittance for three different cases is deter-mined in this method: U1 = combined thermal transmittance of the test specimen and Size: KB.

Referenced Documents (purchase separately) The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. ASTM Standards. D Test Method for Haze and Luminous Transmittance of Transparent Plastics.

D Practice for Calculation of Color Tolerances and Color Differences from Instrumentally. In this example the total resistance is K⋅m 2 /W. The thermal transmittance of the structure is the reciprocal of the total thermal resistance. The thermal transmittance of this structure is therefore W/(m 2 ⋅K).

(Note that this example is simplified as it does not take into account any metal connectors, air gaps interrupting the insulation or mortar joints between the bricks.

The measurements required by this standard when using two meter bars are: T 1 = hotter temperature of the hot meter bar, K, T 2 = colder temperature of the hot meter bar, K, T 3 = hotter temperature of the cold meter bar, K, T 4 = colder temperature of the cold meter bar, K, A = area of the test surfaces, m2, and d = specimen thickness, m.

Based on the idealized test. The thermal transmittance (U) can be used to compare different products of the same test size. Due to changes in the ratio of materials for different sized specimens having the same construction, the thermal transmittance will vary with test specimen size.

Air infiltration rates are measured directly from the test specimen. 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 ASTM E, Water Penetration Test of Exterior Windows, Skylights, and Doors.

Finite element computer models and the condensation resistance factor (CRF) test results using AAMAVoluntary Test Method for Thermal Transmittance and Condensation Resistance of Windows, Doors, and Glazed Wall Sections, can be useful in comparing products or as a basis for performance specifications.

This test method describes how to determine a fenestration product's (also called test specimen) thermal transmittance, U S, at well-defined environmental conditions.

The thermal transmittance, which is sometimes called the air-to-air U-factor, is also a reported test result from Test Methods C, C, and C mens and for thermal conductivity values up to 60 Wm-1K.

NOTE 1—A body is considered homogeneous when the property to be measured is found to be independent of specimen dimensions. This test method is similar in concept to Test Method C, but is modified to accommodate smaller test specimens, having a higher thermal conductance.

Visible transmittance (VT) is a fraction of the visible spectrum of sunlight ( to nanometers), weighted by the sensitivity of the human eye, that is transmitted through the glazing of a window, door, or skylight. A product with a higher VT transmits more visible light. VT is expressed as a number between 0 and 1.

The thermal transmittance is also a reported test result from Test Method C If only the thermal transmittance is reported using this test method, the test report must also include a detailed description of the environmental conditions in the thermal chamber during the test as outlined in ASTM, (), C, Standard test method for steady-state thermal performance of building assemblies by means of a guarded hot box, Annual Book of Standards, Vol.
