Material Behavior

To obtain an understanding of the performance of buildings in fire, the material behaviour forming the components of the building needs to be understood at elevated temperatures.

The following material behaviour at elevated temperatures is discussed:

Mechanical properties depend on the rate of loading and the rate of heating. There are basically two types of tests to derive a constitutive equation for modeling the stress-strain-temperature relationship, known as

The mechanical properties that vary with temperature comprise:

The thermal properties that vary with temperature comprise:
