This standard is issued under the fixed designation C ; the number immediately 1 This test method is under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee C- 16 on. ASTM C () Standard Test Method for Thermal Performance of Building Materials and Envelope Assemblies by Means of a Hot Box Apparatus. Annual. Our calibrated hot box is one of the largest in the country accepting test assemblies up to 9’x16′. Its design allows any orientation from fully vertical to fully .

Air infiltration or moisture migration can alter the net heat transfer. To learn more about how Hot Box testing can help your success in the market, contact us. The report shall contain a warning stating that the use of the barriers might modify the heat transfer d1363 the system causing significant errors.

Dynamic control strategies have included both periodic or non-periodic temperature cycles, for example, to follow a diurnal cycle. Subscription pricing is determined by: To gain this final confidence in the test result, it is necessary to benchmark the overall result of the hot box apparatus by performing measurements on specimens having known heat transfer values and comparing those results to the expected values.

Direct current DC power is used to power both the heater and the fans as DC current provides a more accurate measurement of the power input. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Note that the use of Test Method C or similar apparatus creates additional uncertainty since those devices are calibrated using transfer standards or standard reference materials.


Practice C may be used as a guide for test specimen conditioning. 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.

ASTM C1363

Practice C may be used as a guide for test specimen conditioning. Already Subscribed to this document. The operation of a hot box apparatus requires a significant number of fundamental measurements of temperatures, areas and power.

It is unlikely that the test conditions will exactly duplicate in-use conditions and the user of the test results must be atsm of possible significant differences. For more information on our thermal testing capabilities click here.

A need exists for accurate data on heat transfer through insulated structures at representative test astk.

For example, in some specimens, especially those containing empty cavities or cavities open to one surface, the overall resistance or transmittance will depend upon the temperature difference across the test specimen due to internal convection.

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. Detailed designs conforming to this standard are not given but must c133 developed within the constraints of the general requirements.

Code officials and designers want R-value data they can count on, but without testing, the R-value of the assembled component is unknown. The direction of airflow motion under forced convective conditions shall be either perpendicular or parallel to the surface.

Large-Scale Hot Box

The operator shall note in the report any use of convection barriers. The energy input to the hot side is precisely measured for both the power to the heater and the power to the circulating fan.


Second, each building material has different thermal conductivity and some materials, especially the wood framing members, are not uniformly distributed through the assembled wall system. The basis for the performance of reflective insulations and radiant barriers will be discussed along with the combination of these materials with cellular plastic or mineral fiber insulations to form hybrid insulation assemblies.

The same apparatus may be used in several orientations but may require special design capability to permit repositioning to each orientation. Many high performance wall systems now also have a layer of rigid foam.

Decisions on material sampling, specimen satm, 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 asym governmental regulations. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. If the hot box apparatus has been designed, constructed and operated in the ideal manner, no further calibration or adjustment would be necessary.

However, several hot box aastm have been operated under dynamic non-steady-state conditions after additional characterization 1. The preconditioning parameters shall be chosen to accurately reflect the test samples intended use and shall be documented in the report. Detailed design of that type of apparatus is beyond the scope of this method.
