AbstractThis report presents the temperature measurements from fire resistance tests conducted at the National Fire Laboratory (NFL) on small-scale, non-insulated, steel and wood stud, gypsum board protected assemblies. Gypsum board arrangements studied were 1x1 (one layer of board on both the exposed and unexposed sides), 1x2 (one layer of board on the exposed side and two layers of board on the unexposed side), 2x1 (Two layers of board on the exposed side and one layer on the unexposed side) and 2x2 (two layers of board on both the exposed and unexposed sides). The effects of using different cavity depths, stud types and asymmetrical installations of gypsum board on the fire resistance in small-scale fire tests were studied. The average temperature distribution on the unexposed surface as well as on the inner-surfaces are presented.
