Abstract This paper presents the results of the detailed assessment of a method that can be used to predict the intumescent coating behaviour and thermal conductivity under different conditions (changing steel section factor, intumescent coating thickness and fire condition). The basis of this method is the analytical solution of Amon and Denson (1984) [1] for predicting bubble growth under pressure under an idealised condition, which has previously been extended by the authors to non-uniform… CONTINUE READING
