Since many common building materials such as steel and concrete do not burn, fire protection of structures made from these materials is not an obvious requirement. It is not until one examines their performance under fire conditions that the need for protecting them becomes apparent.
Tests carried out at fire test laboratories have shown that steel columns and beams loaded to normal design limits will collapse when the steel temperature reaches approximately 1000oF. Unprotected columns and beams can collapse after only 10-15 minutes exposure to fire. Obviously, structural collapse after this brief period of time would be disastrous.
Building regulations require certain elements of a structure to have a fire resistance rating. Structural columns and beams must be able to withstand the effects of a standard fire exposure for the required time period.
