AbstractStudies on columns were started a few years ago for the purpose of updating the fire resistance ratings for reinforced concrete columns in the National Building Code of Canada. These ratings were related to full scale test results obtained in about 1920. Since that time, design procedures have changed and the safety factor has decreased. This indicates a need for revision of these ratings.
