Fire Rated Seismic Joints (2000)
Alternative TitleFire Engineering Research Report 00/6
This report reviews the design, selection testing, installation and performance of fire rated seismic joints from first principles then compares this with current standards and codes of practice around the world. It reviews generic seismic joint designs in use today and the problems that can arise during the selection and installation phase of the job. It makes recommendations for areas of improvement in standards based on the first principle examination of joint requirements and actual selection and installation experience. One of the key findings of the report is the need to clearly be able to convey the range of movement expected from a seismic joint to the manufacturer, designer, specifier, installer and later the building owner or maintenance or fit-out workers. To assist this a labelling system for joints has been developed and a web site produced to allow the viewer to dynamically see how joints move by inputting a range of movements.

Min, J-K.; Abu, A.K.; Moss, P.J.; Dhakal, Rajesh; Buchanan, A.H. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2012)In fire design for floors, the three criteria of stability, integrity and insulation are required for the specified fire resistance duration. Among these, stability is not easy to confirm. For solid prestressed concrete ...

Griffin, Mike; Beavis, Brian (University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering, 1992)In summary some general comments can be made about prestressed concrete in fire. The main problem is the amount of cover required to protect the steel from reaching excessive temperatures. This is also the main problem ...
