Abstract

Purpose. Comprehensively estimate the temperature of the gaseous medium inside the experimental fragment of the building when conducting full-scale fire tests.

Methods. Measuring the temperature inside the experimental fragment during a fire.

Findings. The temperature of the gaseous medium during full-scale fire tests of building constructions are measured. A difference in temperature was found in different parts of the fragment. The values of the equivalent duration of a standard fire for the tests are obtained.

Application field of research. The results of the study can be used in the appointment of boundary conditions (determination of thermal effect) to determine the heating of the tested building constructions. The conducted studies contribute to the accumulation of experimental data on the effect of fire load on the temperature-time curves in case of fire.
