AbstractUnexposed wall surface temperatures are used to determine spatial fire separation requirements for buildings. A series of 10 small-scale fire tests of insulated sheet steel walls was conducted to study the influence of wall fastening details, surface ventilation, and insulation thickness on these temperatures. Test results showed that thermal performance is affected by all three parameters, in particular insulation thickness. A one-dimensional heat transfer analysis and an empirical formula predicted test results accurately.
