Fire Resistance Properties of Palm Oil Fuel Ash ‎Cement ‎Based Aerated Concrete

Khairunisa Abdullah, Mohd Hussin

Abstract


POFA cement based aerated concrete, an agro based lightweight concrete containing palm oil fuel ‎ash (POFA) as partial cement substitute; possess adequate strength suitable for non load-bearing ‎element application. This paper discusses fire resistance properties of this material in the aspect ‎of its combustibility, contribution towards fire and its tendency to spread flame over its surface ‎that has been investigated in accordance to BS 476 : Part 4, Part 6. and Part 7 respectively. The ‎findings indicate that the integration of POFA does not affect this agro based material to exhibit ‎good fire resistance.‎


Keywords
