Appendix to TR 9 - Fire Performance Characteristics of Protected Wood and Steel Floor-Ceiling Assemblies (Legacy 1987)

24 pages (7.4 MB PDF)

During 1965 and 1966, a series of fire tests were conducted at the Engineering Experiment Station at Ohio State University with the purpose, “To develop comparative performance data from fire resistance tests of typical building assemblies of steel, wood, and heavy timber connections; to assess the effect of the use of fire retardant treated wood in similar assembles; and to study the effect of varying control parameters on the fire exposure severity.” The report contains significant information on the fire performance characteristics of protected wood and steel floor-ceiling assemblies, particularly the heat release properties of wood construction as shown by relative fuel consumption data.
