Abstract:
A general discussion of fire resistance of reinforced concrete floors, and a recent test program by PCA is discussed briefly. To obtain information on heat transmission through concrete floors and on the structural stablity with usual amounts of protection for the reinforcement, the first tests were of solid one-way slabs of different thicknesses and different concretes.
