Description: This lecture gives information about characteristic behaviour of aluminium alloys and insulation materials at high temperatures; it describes the philosophy of using aluminium alloy structures under risks of fire; it gives an example of fire risk analysis. General engineering background and some familiarity with TALAT lecture 2501 is assumed.
Keywords: design • fire resistance • high temperatures • physical properties • mechanical properties • insulation materials • rockwool • ceramic fibres • calcium silicate boards • gypsum boards • intumescent materials • spray-on cement based materials • microtherm • risk analysis
