Title: Fire Resistance of Lightweight Insluating Concretes
Author(s): A.H. Gustaferro, M.S. Abrams, and A. Litvin
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 161-180
Keywords: celluar concretes; concrete slabs; fire resistance; fire tets; floors; humidity; insulating concretes; lightweight aggregate concretes; moisture content; perlite; research; roofs; structural design; thermal insulation; thickness; vermiculite
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.
