AbstractThis Digest presents a state-of-the-art summary of some studies on the fire resistance of various structural members now being conducted at the Division of Building Research. For example, the fire resistance of beams, columns and walls can be determined by calculation which is far less expensive and time-consuming than by testing. Several fire resistance formulas are now available for making design calculations.
