23 AAM MA 503 AAMA 503 was originally published in 1992 AAMA 503 is a similar document to AAMA 502 for Storefronts, Curtain Walls & Sloped Glazing Systems. Updated in 2003 & 2008 AAMA Defined newly installed as prior to issuance of the occupancy permit not to exceed 6 months after issuance of the occupancy permit.

30 Forensic Investigation

31 ASTM References in AAMA 511 n Fore ensic Inve estig gatio ASTM E 2128, Standard Guide for Evaluating Water Leakage of Building Walls This guide describes methods for determining and evaluating water leakage of exterior walls. A wall is considered a system including its exterior and interior finishes, fenestration, and structural components.

32 n Fore ensic Inve estig gatio Involves more than just testing The purpose of diagnostic testing is to recreate water leaks that t are known to occur AAMA 511 testing either follows up on AAMA 502 and 503 testing or is used in a water intrusion investigation

33 n Fore ensic Inve estig gatio The ultimate goal of 511 diagnostic testing is to recreate existing leakage behavior that occurs under in-service conditions.

34 n Fore ensic Inve estig gatio Four Preliminary Steps prior to testing Review of project documents Evaluation of design concept Determination of service history Inspection Three Steps During and After Testing Investigative Testing Analysis Report

35 n Fore ensic Inve estig gatio Step #1: Review Project Documents Architectural drawings Structural drawings Shop drawings Installation instructions Contracts Purchase orders Specifications Warranties

36 n Fore ensic Inve estig gatio Step # 2: Evaluation of Design Concept Water management concept Critical details Test reports Flashing Sealants Weep Holes

37 n gatio estig c Inve ensic Fore Step # 3: Determination of Service History Review maintenance records Interview knowledgeable personnel Research leak history

38 n Fore ensic Inve estig gatio Step #4: Inspection Interior observations Exterior observations Observe workmanship Observe product deficiency Develop a hypothesis for the source of the water intrusion

39 Forensic Investigation

40 n Fore ensic Inve estig gatio Determination is based on: Field Standards Laboratory Standards Prior Testing Weather Data Experience

41 n Fore ensic Inve estig gatio Simulate the weather events Obtain wind speed If calculated wind speed is greater then 2/3 of the rated WTP for the product it may be that the product was not the most appropriate for the project. At least one pressure difference test must be done at the 2/3 pressure

42 n Fore ensic Inve estig gatio ASCE 7 accounts for: Exposure Height above grade Basic wind speed (or weather data) Location of specimen within façade

43 Forensic Investigation

44 n gatio estig c Inve ensic Fore The objective of testing is to identify the leak paths

45 Exam mple 1 MA 511- AAM Consistent leaks more than one year Heaviest leakage twice during September 2005 Class II Building height is 33 ft., window (z) is 27 ft. above ground Window is 4 high x 4 wide, wind area (A) of 16 ft 2 AAMA rating C35

46 AAMA 511 Example #1

47 Estimating the Test Pressure Exam mple MA 5 AAM ASCE/SEI 7 05 analysis is used with the following information: Location of building (Newark, NJ) Building usage designation (Class II) Exposure level (Exposure B) Building ud gdesign (enclosed structure with a flat roof ) Building height (33 ft.) Window area (16 square ft.) From these features, the water resistance test pressure is, theoretically, 2.4 psf.

48 Exam mple 1 Local weather data is analyzed by daily readings for September of 2005, allowing the investigator to observe the weather condition, amount of precipitation it ti and maximum wind speed for each day MA 511- AAM

49 AAMA 511 Example #1

50 Exam mple MA 5 AAM The maximum 5 second gust wind speeds are recorded for every day in September in which measurable rainfall occurred Date Rain Fall (in) Max Wind Speed (mph) 5-Sec. Gust 4-Sep Sep Sep

51 Exam mple MA 5 AAM Only two leak events are reported during September 2005 Average wind determined to be 34 mph Date Rain Fall (in) Max Wind Speed (mph) 5-Sec. Gust 4-Sep Sep Sep

52 Exam mple 1 MA 511- AAM Result = 2.1 psf which is the differential pressure used to evaluate the window opening in question Weather data analysis is used to determine field water penetration resistance pressure Table 3 of AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S. 2/A shows tested water penetration resistance pressure The result of the weather data analysis (2.2 psf ) is the differential pressure used to evaluate the window opening in question

53 Exam mple 2 MA 511- AAM Leak Reported during storm on September 21, 2005 Class II, Exposure C Building height is 60 ft., window (z) is 55 ft. above ground Window is 2 high x 2 wide, wind area (A) of 4 ft2 AAMA rating C35

54 Estimating the Test Pressure Exam mple MA 5 AAM ASCE/SEI 7 05 analysis is used with the following information: i Location of building (Chicago, Il) Building usage designation (Class II) Exposure level (Exposure C) Building design (enclosed structure with a flat roof ) Building height (60 ft.) Window area (4 square ft.) From these features, the water resistance test pressure is, theoretically, 3.2 psf.

55 Exam mple MA 5 AAM Referring to tabulated local weather data above, the investigator can determine and record the maximum 5 second gust speeds on the date of the reported leak Date Rain Fall (in) Max Wind Speed (mph) 5-Sec. Gust 21-Sep

56 11- Exam mple 2 AAM MA 5 52 mph can now be used in Eq from SEI/ASCE 7 05 to establish a wind pressure of psf Since specimen height is above 60 feet above grade, this wind pressure is inserted into Eq to calculate maximum test pressure Result = 8.4 psf, which is greater than the laboratory water penetration ti resistance it test tpressure of psf as prescribed for a C 35 product rating. Since calculated differential air test pressure exceeds the rated performance value for the product, investigator shall first perform at least 1 test at 2/3 of the product performance rating prior to testing at calculated pressure.

57 Interior Weep Holes Water shall cover all horizontal surfaces expected to be wet Tape applied over Exterior Weep Test Water Head measured from bottom of exterior wrap AAMA 511 Example #2
