Program of Fire Research Center of Portland Cement Assn comprises two separate parts; tests with large furnaces and small-scale research on concrete and steel at high temperatures; 40 ft long, 6 ft wide beam-testing furnace is connected with control room for recording temperatures, strains, deflections, and loads; it is concluded that prestressed concrete can be produced to have any reasonably required fire endurance period.
