Future Work

Given the numerous variables associated with any given SSG installation, this in development test method can never accurately mimic nor replicate the fatigue actually occurring for any specific installation. It can provide a basis and a model from which to further study fatigue and to provide some guidelines and understanding of how the SS reacts under repetitive loading. Further development of this method may result in its inclusion in the ASTM Cl 184 Specification for Structural Silicone Sealants.
