ABSTRACT

Coffee Break Training: Maintaining Fire-Resistive Construction Elements   [open pdf - 132KB]

"The photograph illustrates steel beams in an parking garage that are supporting a floor deck where heavy motor vehicles are stored. Due to the building's size, the structural elements must be protected to a minimum one-hour fire resistance rating. In this particular example, the steel's fire resistance rating is achieved through concrete encasement."
