Intermediate-scale orientation tests
This test rig is used to assess the fire performance of elements of shapes that are representative of structural components (prisms or slabs) under heat load as per the ISO 834 reference curve. The assessment criteria used for the test are :
- Visual appraisal of disorders
- Depth of spalling
- Where applicable, loss of mass during the test (case of prismatic test specimens suspended from a force sensor enabling change in prism mass to be calculated).
