Hemispeherical Spectral Reflectance
and
Total Emittance Test Report

 

1.0     Introduction

This report represents results of special reflectance and total emittance measurements on the following four brick specimens coded:

#01
#22
#46
#99

 

2.0     Test Methods and Procedures

Reflectance

Hemispherical spectral reflectance measurements were performed in accordance with ASTM Standard Test Method E903.  The measurements were performed with a PerkinElmer Lambda 950 Spectrophotometer utilizing an integrating sphere (Fig A1.3 of E903).  Total reflectance measurements were obtained in the solar spectrum from 2500nm to 300nm at an incident range of 8o.  The measurements employ a detector-baffled, wall-mounted integrating sphere that precludes the necessity of employing a reference standard except to define the instrument’s 100% line.  The measurements are properly denoted as being hemispherical spectral reflectance.

Total Solar p reflectance was obtained by integrating the spectral data against Air Mass 1.5 (ASTM G159) direct solar spectrum utilizing 105 weighted ordinates. All spectral data are submitted herewith in the original.

Emittance

Near-normal infrared reflectance measurements were performed in accordance with ASTM E408, Method A. A Gier Dunkle Instruments Infrared Reflectometer Model DB 100 was utilized for the measurements.

 

3.0       Observations, Deviations and Waivers

All measurements were performed on the top side of the specimen.

The values reported for emittance represent the average of at least four measurements.

With all test methods, there typically is a level of uncertainty for the test data due to the acceptable operating tolerances of the instrumentation and variation caused by the test method.  The estimated tolerances are expected to be less than plus or minus 2% for most materials tested to ASTM E903.
