Keynote lecture: THE PAST AND FUTURE OF STRUCTURAL FIRE ENGINEERING IN THE USA
AbstractThis Keynote Lecture recounts the historical development of building code requirements for fire in the U.S. and makes the case for the need for experimental data on real-scale structural systems under realistic fire conditions in support of structural fire engineering. Further the lecture will describe the capabilities of the NFRL and provide an update on the commissioning of the new lab and plans for future tests.
