*Recommended Dynamic Test Method for Determining the Seismic Drift Causing Glass Fallout from Window Wall, Curtain Wall and Storefront Systems
This method provides a means of determining the horizontal racking displacement amplitude of exterior wall system framing members that would cause fallout of representative architectural glass panels under controlled laboratory conditions. The test method provides a suggested default configuration but may also be applied to project-specific configurations.

Recommended Static Testing Method for Evaluating Curtain Wall and Storefront Systems Subjected to Seismic and Wind Induced Interstory Drift
This test method provides a means of evaluating the performance of curtain walls and storefront wall systems when subjected to specified horizontal displacements in the plane of the wall. The method is not intended to test for dynamic, torsional, or vertical movements. The relatively slow (i.e., “static”) movements of this test method may not produce the same results as would be obtained in a dynamic movement test. This test method is a complement to AAMA 501.6 – “Recommended Dynamic Test Method for Determining the Seismic Drift Causing Glass Fallout from a Wall System.” AAMA 501.6 focuses primarily on determining the dynamic fallout from wall system panels that are representative of the overall wall system being evaluated. In contrast, this test method focuses primarily on changes in serviceability of wall system specimens (e.g., air and water leakage rates) as a result of statically applied, inplane (horizontal) racking displacements. Thus, the AAMA 501.6 test method focuses primarily on the seismic ultimate limit state behavior of architectural glass in a wall system or partition, while this test method focuses primarily on the seismic serviceability limit state behavior of wall systems. This test method is applicable to large curtain wall and storefront mock-ups consisting of supports, components and cladding. The proper use of this test method requires an understanding of static load applications, deflection measurements, and test fixture design as required to accomplish controlled movements of the simulated structure. This test method describes the apparatus and the procedure to be used for displacing a specimen horizontally. The displacement cycle time is not limited and is not intended to duplicate the interstory displacement rates associated with dynamic building sway and seismic events.
