The measurement methods apply for spaces where the combined conditions concerning the uniformity of tracer gas concentration, measurement of the exhaust gas concentration, effective mixed zone and/or fluctuation of ventilation are satisfied. ISO 12569:2017 provides three measurement methods using a tracer gas: concentration decay method, continuous dose method, and constant concentration method. NOTE Specific measurement conditions are given in Table 1.

ISO 16957:2016 describes a method of measuring the thermal conductivity (diffusivity) of a wet porous building material and a method of evaluating the measurement uncertainty. While ISO 10051 is the current International Standard, based on a steady-state method, ISO 16957:2016 proposes a method that makes use of a non-steady-state method which uses a small temperature change with a short period as an input. Along with the measurement, an evaluation of the measurement uncertainty is described, which makes possible a simple and practical measuring method. ISO 16957:2016 intends to measure the apparent (effective) thermal conductivity, including latent heat transfer caused by vapour movement. The situation in which moisture and/or air movement occur due to convection or gravity is excluded. The application of ISO 16957:2016 to high moisture content is excluded so that the gravity effect can be neglected. ISO 16957:2016 can be applied to a porous material heavier than about 100 kg/m3, in which radiative heat transfer can be neglected. It specifies the following: a) a non-steady-state method of measuring thermal conductivity; b) an approximation formula for the measurement uncertainty caused by moisture movement and nonuniform moisture distribution (and, thus, a determination of the measuring conditions that satisfy the upper limit of measurement uncertainty); c) an estimate of the heat transfer caused by moisture (vapour) movement.

ISO 9972:2015 is intended for the measurement of the air permeability of buildings or parts of buildings in the field. It specifies the use of mechanical pressurization or depressurization of a building or part of a building. It describes the measurement of the resulting air flow rates over a range of indoor-outdoor static pressure differences. ISO 9972:2015 is intended for the measurement of the air leakage of building envelopes of single-zone buildings. For the purpose of this International Standard, many multi-zone buildings can be treated as single-zone buildings by opening interior doors or by inducing equal pressures in adjacent zones. ISO 9972:2015 does not address evaluation of air permeability of individual components.

ISO 9869-1:2014 describes the heat flow meter method for the measurement of the thermal transmission properties of plane building components, primarily consisting of opaque layers perpendicular to the heat flow and having no significant lateral heat flow. The properties which can be measured are: a) the thermal resistance, R, and thermal conductance, Λ, from surface to surface; b) the total thermal resistance, RT, and transmittance from environment to environment, U, if the environmental temperatures of both environments are well defined. The heat flow meter measurement method is also suitable for components consisting of quasi homogeneous layers perpendicular to the heat flow, provided that the dimensions of any inhomogeneity in close proximity to the heat flow meter (HFM) is much smaller than its lateral dimensions and are not thermal bridges which can be detected by infrared thermography. ISO 9869-1:2014 describes the apparatus to be used, the calibration procedure for the apparatus, the installation and the measurement procedures, the analysis of the data, including the correction of systematic errors and the reporting format.

This International Standard specifies equipment and procedures to condition a thermal insulating product to equilibrium moisture content at (23 ± 2) °C and (50 ± 5) % relative humidity. It is also applicable to thermal insulating products with moulded skins but is not normally relevant for faced products or for products with other surface treatments. NOTE 1 The normally specified moisture content is the result of the equilibrium between the atmosphere and the product at (23 ± 2) °C and (50 ± 5) % relative humidity. This International Standard can also be used if a product has to be conditioned to other relative humidities. NOTE 2 The moisture equilibrium may, due to hysteresis effects, differ depending on whether the equilibrium has been reached by absorption or by desorption. In addition, perfect equilibrium can require a very long time to be reached. Therefore, it is necessary to accept equilibrium within a certain accuracy. NOTE 3 For products that do not absorb moisture, conditioning is not needed. It should, nevertheless, be ensured that there is no water on the surface before testing.

This International Standard specifies the equipment and procedures for determining shear behaviour. It is applicable to thermal insulating products. NOTE The tests described in this International Standard do not determine pure shear behaviour, but measure the effects of applying two opposite parallel forces to the major faces of the test specimen. The test is, however, called "shear" in this text by convention. The application of a force tangentially to the major surface of the test specimen is considered to represent more closely the stresses imposed upon thermal insulation products in many building applications, particularly walls, than other methods of measuring shear performance, e.g. bending tests.
