This Week's Featured Presentation

Provisions of ACI/TMS 216.1—Concrete and Masonry Fire Resistance Calculation
by R. Lang, National Concrete Masonry Association

Session details

Rational Design Methodologies: Fire Resistance of Concrete and Masonry (ACI Fall 2016 Convention, Philadelphia, PA)
This session will review the current methodologies for fire resistance design, including the ACI/TMS 216.1 requirements for determining fire resistance of concrete and masonry assemblies. Looking forward, rational design approaches will be discussed, as well as the current knowledge gaps that must be addressed before such methodologies could be standardized. A review of current research in fire performance of concrete and masonry will also be reviewed, especially as that research relates to promoting rational design methods.
