|Title:||A Study of Thermal Behavior of a Composite Floor System in Standard Fire Resistance Tests|
|Published:||October 26, 2012|
|Abstract:||This report summarizes the characterization of the furnace thermal environment and thermal behavior of members during the fire tests. Additionally, numerical results from a heat transfer finite element model of a representative section of the floor system are compared against data obtained in the full-scale tests to evaluate the finite element heat transfer model. Future work will focus on determining uncertainties in predicting temperatures of structural members using experimental data collected during NIST‰s WTC fire resistance tests.|
