Title Passive fire protection: Performance requirements and test methods
Bibliographic information HMSO Books, P.O. Box 276, London SW8 5DT, United Kingdom, 1992. 77p. 77 ref. Price: GBP 10.00.
Abstract This report is one of a series concerning fire resistance of offshore structures. Performance requirements for offshore passive fire protective systems are appraised along with an assessment of the adequacy of current tests for ensuring that performance. Types of fire and explosion events are described, followed by a review of passive fire protection usage and standard fire tests for elements of construction. Performance considerations include installation requirements, durability under service conditions in the pre-fire phase, exposure to fire conditions likely to be experienced offshore and the effects of explosions. Glossary of organisations and official bodies, and of terms and abbreviations.
