AbstractThe paper presents results of measurements of thermal properties at elevated temperatures of construction materials commonly used to build lightweight wood-framed assemblies. The test results are given as a function of temperature for thermal conductivity, specific heat, mass loss and thermal expansion/contraction for wood, gypsum and insulation. In addition, The paper discusses the effects of temperature on the thermal conductivity, specific heat, mass loss and thermal expansion/contraction of these materials. Finally, in addition to providing a resource of information, this paper also identifies the additional thermal property tests required to complete the matrix of information..
