Chapter 19 Review 1. Cladding is difficult to make watertight because wind can push water in any direction, and through any openings. This problem is more pronounced on very tall buildings, where high winds velocities at upper levels create higher pressures and velocities. 2. A. Keeping water out - solved by using sealants. B. Preventing air leakage – solved by using sealants. C. Limiting light – controlled by selecting different sizes or types of glass. D. Controlling heat – similar to controlling light. E. Controlling water – controlled with weep holes.

Unformatted text preview: F. Limiting sound – done by using heavier glass with tighter tolerances. G. Resisting wind – selecting adequate windows to withstand the loads. H. Controlling movement – designing the building to be more rigid. I. Resisting fire – using the correct requirements for combustibility. 4. The forces that can move water are gravity, momentum, surface tension, and air pressure differences. Having outward sloping surfaces, specific joints, drip breaks, and pressure equalization camber respectively can stop these problems....
