Fire resistance of wooden cellular slabs with rectangular perforations

Wooden cellular slabs with rectangular perforations are commonly used by civil engineers in settings such as concert halls, nurseries, hotels, airports, etc., for noise elimination and heat retention. In this study, fire resistance of perforated wooden slabs was tested in order to attain a numerical ...

Analysis of Inter-laboratory Testing of Non-loadbearing Gypsum/Steel-Stud Wall Assemblies 

This report details a project undertaken in 2006 and 2007 to verify the fire rating of gypsum wall/steel stud assemblies. Samples were sent to six different fire testing laboratories and tested in 10 different furnaces. All of the laboratories returned ratings of 1-h for the samples. Researchers ...

Effect of temperature on thermal properties of spray applied fire resistive materials

This paper used the TPS to measure the thermal conductivity of several different spray applied fire resistive materials between a temperature of 20-1000°C. Mass loss and thermal strain were also investigated. These properties are crucial components of the material, and decide how effectively it ...

A slug calorimeter for evaluating the thermal performance of fire resistive materials

An equation for determining the effective thermal conductivity of fire resistive materials using a slug calorimeter was developed, and effective thermal conductivities were measured during heating and cooling cycles of these materials. The obtained values were compared to those obtained through measurements using the hot ...

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 ...
