This handbook summarises standard fire test data for fire protection materials applied to steel members and composite beams. It assesses the materials on a consistent basis to enable the required thickness to be ascertained without reference to individual test reports. Values of fire protection thickness determined in accordance with this handbook may be deemed to satisfy the ASI document "Guidelines for assessment of fire resistance of structural steel members". All data was obtained from tests which satisfy the relevant requirements of AS 1530, Part 4 -1985.
Please note that this publication has been partially superseded by "Structural steel fire guide: Guide to the use of fire protection materials" by J. Rakic, Steel Construction journal vol. 42, no. 1, Dec 2008. This journal may be purchased separately.
