Abstrait:

The present research was dedicated to investigation into the strength of timber structures under fire conditions. Two kinds of timber specimens including oak and pine were used. The carried out investigation covered static tests on tensile strength, compressive strength along the grain, compressive strength perpendicular to the grain and flexural strength. The specimens were tested under the temperatures of 50°C, 100°C, 150°C, 200°C and 230°C. The obtained results show that pine specimens have better properties over the entire temperature range in case of tests on tensile and flexural strength. Also, as for these types of strength, oak specimens show a higher strength reduction rate than those of pine specimens, whereas oak specimens have better properties over the entire temperature ranges in case of compressive strength perpendicular to the grain. Based on statistical analysis, a linear expression of the strength reduction coefficient was proposed.
