AbstractThe results of fire tests on two bearing walls and one light-weight partition, constructed and tested at the Tianjin Fire Research Institute, are described. The primary purpose of conducting these tests was to provide data for evaluating the fire resistance of walls commonly used in China. The study variables included type of structure, dimensions and bearing capacities.
