AbstractThis paper discusses the development of a model and compares the temperature predictions from the model with results from 5 full-scale experimental test data. The model developed predicts reasonably well the temperature distribution across steel C-joists protected with gypsum board floor assemblies, with and without insulation in the floor cavity. Model limitations and further developments are identified.
