in 1964, TC10 is primarily concerned with solving problems relevant to
industry in the field of the optical properties of glass and coated glass
TC10 aims to improve the accuracy and
reliability of the measurement of spectral optical properties needed to
determine the relevant ultraviolet, luminous, solar and thermal performance
parameters of glazing products employed in building, automotive and solar
energy conversion applications.
Important areas of activity concern
instrumentation, measurement techniques and procedures, calibration and
reference materials and calculation methods.
There is a strong emphasis on the use of
interlaboratory comparisons. Recent work has addressed the
spectrophotometric determination of emissivity, error sources in the
measurement of diffuse optical properties and the accuracy of portable
instrumentation for the determination of colour parameters.
Current activities include the
development of measurement procedures for reliable measurement of the
transmittance of three dimensional patterned glass, fritted glass and
laminates and determination of dispersion functions for bare glass
Strong links exist between TC10 and
relevant international and European standards committees and work has
contributed to the development and revision of glass in buildings standards
such as EN 410, EN 673, EN 12898 and ISO 9050.
