ASTM International will hold its 10th Symposium on Roofing Research and Standards Development Dec. 3 at the Washington Hilton in Washington, D.C. Sponsored by ASTM Committee D08 on Roofing and Waterproofing, the symposium will be held in conjunction with the committee’s December standards development meetings.
The symposium provides a forum for contributing to the fundamental understanding of acceptable roof performance, with the primary emphasis being current research and development work. It will center on the influence of laboratory and field investigations in the development of standards for roofing and waterproofing materials and systems.
The symposium will address topics describing research and standards development for low- and steep-slope roof systems, including roof system durability and service life prediction; roofing in an era of sustainability and resiliency; synthetic single-ply roof systems; metal roof systems; advances in waterproofing; and air and moisture movement in roof systems, among other topics.
