Fire endurance model for a metal-plate-connected wood truss by Robert H White( Book )
3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 112 libraries worldwide
Wood-based paneling as thermal barriers by Robert H White( Book )
6 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 86 libraries worldwide
Fire penetration tests were conducted to examine how the thermal protection afforded insulation in fire-exposed wall assemblies is influenced by wood-based panel type and thickness. Small-scale specimens (20-by 20-in.) were fabricated reflecting 1/4- to 3/4-inch plywood over 1-inch slabs of foam plastics; 5/8-inch plywood panels with no backup material, over a 3-1/2-inch loose-fill cellulosic insulation, 3-1/2-inch air gap, 1/2-inch foam plastic, or 3-1/2-inch glass-fiber insulation; and 5/8-inch particle board, 5/8-inch hardboard composite, 5/8-inch solid wood, 5/8-inch fire-retardant-treated plywood or 1/2-inch gypsum wallboard over 1-inch slabs of foam plastic. These specimens were then subjected to the time-temperature fire exposure given in ANSI/ASTM Standard E 119. Because this research was conducted only to characterize material response and not to define the more complex performance of full-scale assemblies according to all the requirements of ANSI/ASTM Standard E 119, the information is not directly applicable to establishing the finish rating for a given panel type. However, the results do increase our understanding of what panel characteristics influence finish rating in assemblies. (Author)
Thermal characteristics of thick red oak flakeboard by Robert H White( Book )
6 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 81 libraries worldwide
As part of a cooperative project between Purdue University and the U.S. Forest Products Laboratory, 1-3/16-inch-thick red oak structural flakeboard was tested for fire penetration, flame spread, and thermal resistance. The small-scale testing indicated satisfactory thermal characteristics for a wood-based product. Fire penetration performance exceeded that of a 1-1/8-inch-thick plywood accepted as roof decking in heavy timber construction. Flame-spread performance met the class C criteria of 200 or less. Thermal resistance was consistent with suggested insulative design values for particleboard. (Author)
Fire development and wall endurance in sandwich and wood-frame structures by Carlton A Holmes( Book )
3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 33 libraries worldwide
Large-scale fire tests were conducted on seven 16- by 24-foot structures. Four of these structures were of sandwich construction with cores of plastic or paper honeycomb and three were of wood-frame construction. The walls were loaded to a computed design loading, and the fire endurance determined under a fire exposure from a typical building contents loading of 4-1/2 lb/ft floor area. The results in the large-scale tests generally agreed with results of laboratory ASTM E 119 tests on the same wall constructions if the slower fire buildup time in the large-scale tests is considered. Thermal barrier protection (gypsum board) on the interior walls of the plywood sandwich construction provided the improved performance needed. The large-scale tests also showed a critical temperature associated with flashover under the fire conditions employed. (Author)
Fire resistance of structural composite lumber products by Robert H White( Book )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 29 libraries worldwide
Wood and timber condition assessment manual ( Book )
5 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 27 libraries worldwide
This report summarizes information on condition assessment of in-service wood, including visual inspection of wood and timbers, use of ultrasound and probing/boring techniques for inspection, and assessment of wood and timbers that have been exposed to fire. The report also includes information on assigning allowable design values for in-service wood
Reaction-to-fire of wood products and other building materials by Ondrej Grexa( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 24 libraries worldwide
This project researched the assessment of reaction-to-fire of common materials using the full-scale room/corner test (ISO 9705) protocol and the predictions of time to flashover using results from the bench-scale cone calorimeter test (ISO 5660-1). Using a burner protocol of 100 kW for 10 min, followed by 300 kW for 10 min and the test materials on the walls only, we obtained effective indications of the fire performance for 11 different untreated wood products, three different fire-retardant-treated (FRT) plywood materials, Type X gypsum wallboard, and FRT polyurethane foam. These same materials were tested in cone calorimeters, both at State Forest Products Research Institute and at Forest Products Laboratory, in which thermophysical properties were derived for use in fire growth models
Reaction-to-fire of wood products and other building materials by Mark Dietenberger( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 20 libraries worldwide
This Part II work evaluated results from the bench-scale cone calorimeter tests (ISO 5660-1) for 11 different untreated wood products, three different fire-retardant-treated (FRT) plywood materials, Type X gypsum board, and FRT polyurethane foam, which were also used in the assessment of reaction-to-fire of common materials using the full-scale room/corner test (ISO 9705) in the Part I report. The evaluation consisted of (1) comparing relative flammability of a variety of wood products and deriving thermophysical and fire properties needed for modeling, (2) developing fire growth models for room/corner fire tests that use the cone calorimeter data to predict heat release rate (HRR) development, and (3) devising reasonable correlations for relating time to flashover to global cone calorimeter data reported as time to ignition (TTI), peak HRR (PHRR), HRR, or peak smoke extinction area (SEA), which provide the link to regulatory test values as described in the Part I report
The nonpareil speller by Robert H White( Book )

Evaluating fire-damaged components of historic covered bridges ( Book )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Arson continues to claim many historic covered bridges. Site-specific, post-fire evaluations of the structural integrity of a bridge are often necessary in a fire’s aftermath. Decisions on whether individual wood components can be rehabilitated, reconstructed, or replaced must be made. This report includes coverage of existing approaches and exploratory approaches that can be used for general guidance and a select number of more specific treatments that can be used to approximate the residual capacity of individual fire damaged members. Topics such as fire-retardant treatments and other measures to prevent future fire damage are also discussed
