Electrical insulating materials - Thermal endurance properties - Part 3: Instructions for calculating thermal endurance characteristics

Specifies the calculation procedures to be used for deriving thermal endurance characteristics from experimental data obtained in accordance with the instructions of EN 60216-1 and EN 60216-2. The experimental data may be obtained using non-destructive, destructive or proof tests. Data obtained from non-destructive or proof tests may be incomplete, in that measurement of times taken to reach the endpoint may have been terminated at some point after the median time but before all specimens have reached end-point. The procedures are illustrated by worked examples, and suitable computer programs are recommended to facilitate the calculations.

Matériaux isolants électriques - Propriétés d'endurance thermique - Partie 3: Instructions pour le calcul des caractéristiques d'endurance thermique

Spécifie les méthodes de calcul à utiliser pour obtenir les caractéristiques d'endurance thermique à partir des données expérimentales obtenues conformément aux instructions de la EN 60216-1 et de la EN 60216-2. Les données expérimentales peuvent être obtenues en utilisant des essais non destructifs, des essais destructifs et des essais d'épreuve. Les données obtenues à partir d'essais non destructifs ou d'essais d'épreuve peuvent être incomplètes, car la mesure des temps mis pour atteindre le point limite peut avoir été arrêtée à un moment situé après le temps médian mais avant que toutes les éprouvettes n'aient atteint le point limite. Les méthodes sont illustrées par des exemples pratiques, et des programmes informatiques adaptés sont recommandés pour faciliter les calculs.
