Determination of Effect of Solar Heating
This document specifies a test method for simulating solar heating in the laboratory and measuring the radiant heat energy from a natural or simulated source. This standard is applicable to all off-road, self-propelled work machines as listed in the scope of SAE J1116 (Rev Nov 2004) when equipped with an operator enclosure system.
Rationale: In order to provide reasonable simulation of the actual solar loads affecting operator comfort at different times of the day and in different areas of the globe, revisions regarding placement of the light banks have been added to this document.
