AbstractAlthough there have been numerous studies on the fire performance of fire rated wall systems over the years, little attention has been focused upon the fire resistance performance of regular gypsum (non-fire rated boards) that are commonly used in partitions/walls of residential houses. In trying to understand the impact of partition walls in the spread of fire within existing fire compartments, it is important not only that a body of data is established that will aid the development of models that can aid in the prediction of such fire spread but also to determine the inherited fire resistance for these type of non-fire rated boards.
