Abstract

With regard to fire protection for exterior walls of a building, only 'fire-resistive performance 'is considered, according to the current building standard law of japanAnd fire propagation along combustible material installed at external side of fire-resistive wall is not specifically evaluated, even though cambustion of extenal cladding could cause acceleration of the fire propagation extierior walls in some cases. In this study, new test method for evaluation of fire propagation combustible cladding, was proposed and also test specimens produced referring to façade wall with exterior thermal insulation were burned in order that the application of the method is demonstrated.
