This practice covers a technique for using heat flux transducers (HFTs) and temperature transducers (TTs) in measurements of the in-situ dynamic or steady-state thermal behavior of opaque components of building envelopes. The applications for such data include determination of thermal resistances or of thermal time constants.
WJE laboratories are accredited by ANAB (ISO/IEC 17025) to perform testing standard ASTM C1046 for Standard Practice for In-Situ Measurement of Heat Flux and Temperature on Building Envelope Components.
