Fire resistance of primary beam - secondary beam connections in timber structures.
529 - 536
This research project deals with the fire resistance of primary beam - secondary beam connections in timber structures. The main objective concerns the fire safety design of joist hangers, full thread screws and dovetail connectors. This paper describes a series of small scale furnace fire tests in different configurations of these types of connectors. In conclusion design recommendations are given.
