AbstractA hybrid fire testing (HFT) approach was carried out by means of both computer simulation and experimentation using the National Research Council Canada?s (NRC) testing facilities in Ottawa. Fire structural performance of a 3D full-scale 6-storey building structure was tested for a fire compartment scenario in the main floor of the building. The column in the designated fire compartment was exposed to the fire in a column furnace and the rest of the building was simulated using a numerical modeling. The methodology of the HFT and its numerical verifications were developed and described in a previous report. This report includes application of the HFT and its displacement results for fire structural performance of the whole 6-storey building. It also includes results of a separate column tested in fire using the traditional fire resistance standard test method. The second column specimen was identical to that of the column tested using the HFT. A comparison is provided between the results of the standard test and the HFT.
