This session will provide an overview on the current state of impact resistance tests for asphalt shingles. The session will also provide details on new technologies and test methods developed by IBHS that provide a better understanding of real-world performance of shingles affected by hail. An overview of wind performance testing of shingles will also be presented.?This session is presented at an intermediate level.
1. Evaluate current impact testing methodologies for asphalt shingles.?
2. Discuss the science on hail characteristics behind the IBHS hail test method, the approach to assessing damage, and how these lead to a better understanding of real-world product performance.?
3. Evaluate current wind testing methodologies for asphalt shingles and how they relate to real-world product performance.
