Understanding Metal Roofing Engineering and Testing

This presentation details each test that is performed on a metal roof system and how they actually apply to the real world. There will be an in-depth look at the impact of wind speed, pressure, and exposure, as well as the importance of designing a roof system that can withstand the design pressures acting on the roof and wall.


Learning Objectives:
  1. Identify top testing labs.
  2. Take an in-depth look at wind uplift tests and testing procedures.
  3. Discuss the similarities and differences of UL 580 and ASTM 1592.
  4. Discuss wind speed versus design pressure.
