Fire Protection of Structural Steel in High-Rise Buildings Report Available

A NIST report shares information on fire protection technologies

Contributors: James Earl  
 

The Civil Engineering Research Foundation has prepared a report discussing important topics related to fire protection of structural steel in high-rise buildings for the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Among the information included in the report titled Fire Protection of Structural Steel in High-Rise Buildings, is an overview of current state-of-the-art fire protection technologies for structural steel, how they work, their advantages and disadvantages, and a sampling of their primary applications.

 

Additionally, the report provides a summary of the standards and performance requirements for the fire resistance of structural steel in high-rise buildings. Lastly, the requirements for test beds and test methods intended to evaluate the fire endurance and performance of structural steel are addressed.

 

This information was provided by the Gaithersburg, MD-based National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Building and Fire Research Laboratory. To view the report in its entirety or to download a copy, visit (www.bfrl.nist.gov/pdf/GCR04_872.pdf).
