Responses for the October 2012 Evaluation Committee Meeting (received at meeting)

Tuesday October 2, 2012

  1. AC377 Public Notification of Alternative Methods for Qualifying Spray-applied Foam Plastic Insulation Used in Attics without a Prescriptive Ignition Barrier. ICC-ES staff is notifying industry and seeking input on how we intend to evaluate spray-applied foam plastic insulations used in unvented residential attics using Section 3.12 of the criteria.

  1. AC385 Proposed Reinstatement (with revisions) of the Acceptance Criteria for Special-purpose Sprinkler Heads Used with Fixed Glazed Assemblies to Provide a Fire-resistance-rated Wall Assembly. It is proposed that the criteria be reinstated and revised to include recognition under the 2012 and 2009 codes. At its June 2011 meeting, the Evaluation Committee declined to approve revisions that were proposed to the criteria at that time and voted to withdraw the criteria that was in effect at that time.

  1. AC232 Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Anchor Channels in Concrete Elements. Revisions are proposed to the torque testing and the splitting due to installation testing requirements. Editorial revisions are also proposed. Click here.

  2. AC308 Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Post-Installed Adhesive Anchors in Concrete Elements. Revisions are proposed to the slice tests in Section 9.8.3 of Annex A; the simulated seismic tension test in Section 9.12.2 of Annex A; and to Sections 3.0, 9.9 and 11.8, as well as Tables 4.1 and 4.2, regarding the corner test.

  3. AC440 — Proposed Acceptance Criteria for Using an Equivalency Approach to Verify Seismic Design Parameters for Lateral-Force-Resisting Vertical Wood Truss Wall Assemblies. A new criteria is proposed to provide requirements confirming the use of metal-plated wooden trusses, referred to as wood truss wall assemblies (WRWA), as substitutes for in-plane shear-resisting vertical components (shear walls) of an otherwise code-complying lateral force-resisting system. This subject was previously considered by the Evaluation Committee in June 2012. Click here.

  1. AC70 Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Fasteners Power-driven into Concrete, Steel and Masonry Elements. Revisions are proposed to include the 2009 and 2006 codes so that a single criteria addresses evaluation to the 2012, 2009, and 2006 codes, to apply the more permissive statements allowed by ASCE/SEI 7-10 regarding the use of the fasteners to resist seismic codes to the 2009 and 2006 codes, revise the scope of the criteria so that it is applicable to lower steel thickness, remove conditional statements corresponding to distributed systems where fasteners are placed in steel materials, allow for the use of the fasteners with base materials other than steel, and revise requirements for quality control to indicate the level of technical information to be included in the quality documentation.
