AbstractA method for the calculation of the fire resistance of timber beams and columns is described. The method is based partly on the results of theoretical studies and partly on the results of a large number of tests on timber beams and columns. Simple formulas for calculating fire resistance are presented. Comparison with experimental results shows good agreement between calculated and measured fire resistances.
