Abstract
In a fire scenario, huge amounts of heat are generated and high temperatures rapidly achieved in such a way that the integrity of structural materials becomes compromised. One of the aims of passive fire protection is the use of building materials that are able to absorb at least part of that heat and maintain the structural materials under critical temperatures for longer times in order to gain evacuation time. Gypsum panels are commonly used in building walls, but they only absorb heat at temp...
