EPSRC Project EP/C510984/1: Robustness of Joints in Fire, 2005-2008

The naming of a test is in the format JOINT(#)_temp_angle_date(_info) where

JOINT(#)

Joint type: FP fin plate, WC web cleat, EP flush end plate, FEP flexible end plate. Number is extra test.
Specimen
temp Steel temperature.
angle Angle of the force to the beam axis in degrees.
date Test date (dd-mm-yy).
info Any extra information distinguishing a particular test.

Please Note: On the PDF data sheets the connection moments should be in kNm, but the values clearly need to be divided by 1000. In the fullness of time we may manage to find time to amend them, but in the meantime we will rely on the awareness of our scientific colleagues.
