  • Calculation of PFP Thickness*

  • The thickness of fire protection required is determined by:

    DurationCritical Steel TemperatureSteel section size and typeHp/A ratioThickness stated in the local or international approval

    m:graphics-cc40sset.ppt

  • SI Units:

    Hp/A =

    M/D =

    A/V =

    Imperial (US) Units:

    W/D =

    A/P = Heated PerimeterCross Section Area=metresmetres=m-1 or /mHeated PerimeterWeight of section=inchesPounds/foot=lb/ft/inHeated Perimeter=Square inches=Cross Section Areain2/ininchesAll express the relationship between the amount of steel capable of absorbing heat to the area of steel surface exposed to the fire.Heated Surface Area=metresmetres=m-1 or /mVolume of SteelMass of SectionHeated Perimeter=Kilograms / metremetres=kg/m

  • How much PFP do I need?Hp/A - Section FactorsCross Sectional Area (A = m)Heated Perimeter (Hp = m)Low Hp/A = Thinner PFP305 x 305 x 240 kg/m Hp/A = 1.905m / 0.0305mHp/A = 62 m-1For H120 (400C): Chartek 7 = 11 mm High Hp/A = Thicker PFP305 x 305 x 97 kg/m Hp/A = 1.789m / 0.0123mHp/A = 145 m-1For H120 (400C): Chartek 7 = 16 mm

  • How much PFP do I need?How Hp/A changes with sides exposed to fire.(Example 305 x 305 x240 Kg/m UC)Note: Cross Sectional Area Remains the same in all cases!Wall, Floor or DeckWall, Floor or Deck

    4 Sides exposed

    Hp/A=

    Hp/A = 62 m-10.0305 m1.905 m3 Sides exposed

    Hp/A=

    Hp/A = 52 m-10.0305 m1.587 mFlange only exposed

    Hp/A=

    Hp/A = 13 m-10.0305 m0.393 m
