Presents data and compares fire test results from various countries of prestressed concrete beams and slabs. Effect of end restraint on fire resistance of prestressed elements is discussed. The fire endurance of normal reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete are compared.
R. R. Sheridan
The degree of fire protection given to steel columns, beams, and girders by various thicknesses of concrete cover is discussed. Protective ceilings used with beam and slab construction and the fire resistance of monolithic concrete and concrete masonry walls are considered.
