This book contains valuable information about the fire resistance of aluminum and aluminum alloys including what occurs when aluminum is in a fire and how the effects of fire damage are evaluated. All aspects of aluminum's fire resistance are described, and reliable methods to estimate the extent of damage resulting from exposure to fire are presented, most notably the relationship between hardness and electrical conductivity with strength. The broad usage of aluminum alloys in major applications such as automotive, oil rigs, naval vessels, and building structures is also reviewed. The information in this book can enable engineers and designers to take account of aluminum's characteristic high resistance to burning while recognizing its relatively low melting point.
Extensive appendices include tensile properties of representative aluminum alloys at elevated temperatures, physical properties of representative of aluminum and aluminum alloys, representative fire test reports for aluminum alloys, and fire protection of aluminum alloys structural shapes.
