Park H., Meacham, B.J. and Kim, Jinkyung, 2014. Fire Performance of Full-Scale Building Subjected to Earthquake Motions: Fire Test Program and Outcomes. Fire Safety Science 11: 746-757. 10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.11-746
A five-story reinforced concrete building was subjected to 13 different motion tests to investigate the influence of earthquakes on building’s nonstructural components and systems (BNCS). After a series of motion tests, a total of six fire tests were conducted at four different locations in the third floor. Temperatures and video data were collected during fire tests to assess the performance of various BNCS including various fire safety measures. As the second paper of this project, following the first paper presenting details of motion tests in the same proceedings, the current paper presents an overview of the fire test program, fire test data, and observations with respect to the performance of fire safety measures such as fire door, sprinkler systems, various fire stop sealants and devices, and interior compartmentalization components.
