Intumescent paints protect steel structures from fires by creating insulative foams when heated above a critical temperature. This paper examines the fire resistance capabilities of phenyl silicone coatings in comparison ...Read More
A simplified approach for predicting temperature profile in steel members with locally damaged fire protection
The structural integrity of steel members is jeopardized when fire insulation is partially lost. This paper examined the thermal and mechanical properties of fire insulation under elevated temperatures to further ...
