The fire endurance of a variety of timber beams under a range of loading conditions has been measured when the beams were subjected to fire resistance tests,as defined in B.S. 476-1932. From observations of the rate of charring of the beams it was found that their fire endurance could be found from the following expression... D.I. Lawson, C.T. Webster and L.A. Ashton
