AbstractMajor research efforts are being invested into developing numerical models that can be used by designers to predict the fire resistance performance of lightweight framed assemblies and to reduce the need for conducting standard fire resistance tests, which are both costly and time consuming. One important limitation of the existing models developed for this purpose is the prediction of gypsum board fall-off, which significantly impacts the fire resistance of an assembly. This paper presents and discusses the results of attempts that were made to develop temperature criteria for the gypsum board layers fall-off in floor assemblies tested under standard fire conditions.
