Uluç Keçik, Aynur; Şenol Balaban, Meltem; Yıldırım Esen, Sibel; Department of City and Regional Planning (2022-6-24)
Fire incidents threaten cultural heritage and lead to irreversible damages. Loss of life, destruction of buildings, and traditional urban tissues are possible consequences of a fire. Major causes of fires at cultural heritage buildings include deficiencies in electrical installations, electrical appliances used during restoration works, unmaintained chimneys, and fire safety negligence. Historic urban tissues in Turkey are highly vulnerable to fires because of using timber as a building material, lack of ma...

Fire tests of cut and cover tunnel roof segments at positive moment region
Arsava, Kemal Sarp; Arsava, Kemal Sarp; Department of Civil Engineering (2011)
The most important issue during a tunnel fire is safety of human life. The tunnel fire structural research and investigations have gained more importance in the last decade but studies show variable results depending on the concrete quality and tunnel design fire. For instance, a certain type of concrete with high moisture content can tend to explode in the first 10-15 minutes of fire with rapid increase of heat release rate. A sudden collapse of the tunnel roof during the fire is unacceptable. Especially i...
Fire Retardant Properties of Intumescent Polypropylene Composites Filled With Calcium Carbonate
Isitman, Nihat Ali; Dogan, Mehmet; Bayramli, ERDAL; Kaynak, Cevdet (Wiley, 2011-05-01)
This study was aimed to investigate the influence of calcium carbonate (CaCO(3)), a widely used filler, on the fire retardancy of intumescent polypropylene composites. Two intumescent systems based on (1) mixture of ammonium polyphosphate (APP) and pentaerythritol and (2) surface-modified APP (m-APP) were examined. In terms of steady heat release rate, total heat evolved, and fire growth index determined by mass loss calorimetry, m-APP performed markedly superior to APP-pentaerythritol. The presence of CaCO...
