Abstract:
Fire resistance of building elements is an important consideration in building design. While structural design considerations for concrete and masonry at ambient temperature conditions are addressed by ACI 318 and ACI 530/ASCE 5/TMS 402, respectively, these codes do not consider the impact of fire on concrete and masonry construction. The standard portion for determining the fire resistance of concrete and masonry members and building assemblies. Where differences occur in specific design requirements between this standard and the above referenced codes, as in the case of cover protection of steel reinforcement, the more stringent of the requirements shall apply.
