AbstractThis paper presents the results of work done to characterize the heat exposure for an intermediate-scale furnace in relation to a full-scale furnace for assessing the fire-ratings of floor and wall systems. It summarizes the results of 12 heat exposure tests: 6 in standard, full-scale wall and floor furnaces, and 6 in non-standard, intermediate-scale wall and floor furnaces. These tests were conducted to investigate the effect of full-scale furnace depth (wall and floor furnaces), furnace size (full-scale and intermediate-scale furnaces) and furnace orientation (intermediate-scale wall and floor furnaces) on heat exposure.
