This research looked to investigate the thermal conductivity and heating performance of asphalt mixtures containing steel slag and steel wool fibers (SWF). A Hot Disk TPS 1500 instrument was used with ...Read More
This paper used the Hot Disk 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 ...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 ...
