07 Horizontal fire furnace
Fire testing of oversize structures, determination of dependence of structural fire-resistance on dimension and combination of loads
• operating fire hatchway: horizontal – 3x9 m
• height of the fire furnace: 4 m
• system of loading:
local load 1x1000 kN – applied to the center of a span 4,0; 6,0; 9,0 m
spreaded load 4x125 kN – applied to an any point of a structure.
Types of structures
• vertical load-bearing structures (columns) of 3,0; 4,0; 6,0 m height
• horizontal load-bearing structures (beams, floor slabs etc) of 3,0; 4,0; 6,0; 9,0 m span.
It is possible to test firefighter equipment (smoke control ducts, fire-resistive fans, fire-stop valves) and fire retardant materials on fire-resistance.
