Abstract

The Tisova Fire Test was a large fire test conducted in the Czech Republic in January 2015 inside of a 4-storey concrete frame building, with concrete and composite deck floors. The test compartment was on the ground floor and the fire compartment had a total area of ca. 230m2 with a height of 4.4m. The fire compartment included four columns from the original 1958 concrete construction, one of which was instrumented for temperatures, chosen due to its higher likelihood of observable structural response both during and after the fire. This paper presents selected results of the test, concentrating on the thermal environment around the column showing the variability of temperatures through the compartment height. The paper also present the columns thermal response, as well as a post-fire assessments of the colum
