AbstractThe Fire Research Laboratory of the Division of Building Research, National Research Council of Canada (DBR/NRC), has been engaged in applied materials research for the past twenty years. The accumulated information has so far remained largely unpublished. Frequent requests from other research laboratories and from industry have brought out the need to release it to the public. Because the information is visualized to benefit fire safety specialists primarily, the material properties in their spheres of interest will be given prominent attention. Those properties are: specific heat, Cp; density, p; thermal conductivity, k; and thermal diffusivity, k, in the case of materials that are, in general, used to form a major part of the mass of non-load- bearing building components, or which are used as protection for load-bearing components.
