Title: Precast Hollowcore slabs in fire

Ref Code: IP5/03
Authors: T Lennon

Abstract1: Following concerns about the performance of hollow core slabs in fire, two full-scale fire tests were carried out at BRE's Large Building Test Facility at Cardington. The objectives were to assess the adequacy of this form of construction in terms of the functional requirements of Approved Document B of the Building Regulations. This paper explains the background to the work, describes the test parameters in detail and summarises the test results and conclusions.
