Title: Thermal bowing in fire and how it affects building design

Ref Code: IP21/88

Abstract1: During a fire, heat can affect one side of a wall or floor leading to differential thermal expansion and bowing. Data from experimental and theoretical work can be used in the design of buildings to reduce the detrimental effect of thermal bowing in, for example, tall walls.
