Estimation of fire resistance by means of calculation performed for atypical exterior wall of a woodstructure

Kamil Vargovský, Pavol Sedlák, Martin Zachar


The paper describes essential characteristics of a structural system for a wood structure, based on light composite wood stud, designed at Technical University in Zvolen.

The system was reviewed by means of calculation method to prove fire resistance, respecting various relevant current standards of Slovak Republic and in accordance to eurocodes series. The methodology considered wider aspects of evaluation (properties, methods, carbonisation, minimal dimensions, cross sections, thermal field).

Later, simple wall design alternatives were created by modification of inner part of the assembly, in order to examine the influence of the modifications to the total fire resistance of the wall.
