Abstract:
This paper presents data on the fire resistance of concretes having oven dry unit weights in the range of 30 to 100 lb per cu ft (500 to 1600 kg/m3). . .Design charts for estimating the fire endurance of two-cource floors and roofs are discussed. Relationships between moisture content and relative humidity of fire test specimens are presented.
