21. AN ADHESION TEST METHOD FOR SPRAY-APPLIED FIRE-RESISTIVE MATERIALS
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/21/2010
Authors: Kar T. Tan, Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston
Abstract: Adhesion of spray-applied fire-resistive materials (SFRMs) to steel structures is critical in enabling the capacity of a building to remain functional for a specific length of time during a fire for life safety and fire department assess. Empirical t ...
