Large scale structural fire test completed

A large-scale structural fire test is successfully completed

Structural Fire Research Group BOUNFIRE at our Department has successfully conducted a large-scale structural fire test with collaboration of Efectis Era Laboratories23 October 2015. A 5m x 5m composite floor system resembling a typical high-rise steel structure floor layout is subjected to a Standard Fire (ISO834) for 105 minutes and cooled afterwards. The results are very promising for a new type of a composite floor, which is resilient to extreme fire events. This test is recorded as the first research-based structural fire test conducted in Turkey.
