Title: Report of Committee on Fireproofing and Insurance
Author(s): E.T. Cairns
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 214-229
Abstract:The appointment of this committee only three months ago was so recent that there has been no time for organized research of experiements on an extended scale, but their views of individual members of the committee , based on their personal experience and investigation, are combined in the following report, which is presented as an outline of the most important work done on the subject up to this date, and acknowledgment is made at the same time that the subject is very imperfectly covered and that the members of the committee have much to learn regarding the fireproof qualities of cement. Indeed, there is such a scarcity of reliable data and so little actual experience with fires in buildings of any form of concrete construction, that, at the present time, any discussion of the subject musst of necessity be largely on a theoretical basis, or, at the best, on the basis of laboratory experiement, both of which, while valuable and necessary, must be supported by actual field experience before the subject can be regarded as properly covered.
