High temperature thermal properties of vanadium steel 

The high temperature fire resistance of vanadium is not well documented, so its properties are usually approximated to the same as conventional structural steels. The goal of this study is to determine the properties that influence the fire resistance of structural steel, thermal conductivity, specific ...


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 understand thermal gradients and develop preventative safety measures. A thermal analyzer measured the thermal conductivity ...

Determining thermal properties of gypsum board at elevated temperatures 

Gypsum board is a building material that shrinks and cracks at high temperatures, which compromises the structural integrity of buildings during fires. Researchers in this study set out to determine the behavior of gypsum board when exposed to real fire conditions. A Thermal Constants Analyzer (...

Review of the high temperature mechanical and thermal properties of the steels used in cold formed steel structures – The case of the S280 Gd+Z steel

The mechanical and thermal properties of structural steel were examined at ambient and high temperature to evaluate the predictive models of current design codes. Tensile coupon tests were performed to evaluate the mechanical properties. Thermal elongation was determined using a high-temperature extensometer, while the thermal ...

Combination of Transient Plane Source and Slug Calorimeter Measurements to Estimate the Thermal Properties of Fire Resistive Materials

Using a combination of transient plane source (TPS) technique and slug calorimetry, 4 commercially available fire resistive materials (FRMs) are studied from room temperature to 1000°C. The materials studied in this report are two gypsum-based and two calcium-silicate based materials. These materials are heterogeneous and thus ...
