Ashton, L.A., 1958. EFFECT OF RESTRAINT IN FIRE RESISTANCE TESTS. Fire Research Notes 359
The paper describes how restraint is applied to different types of specimen at the Fire Research Station, and the reasons for adopting these methods are given. Data showing the effect of varying the restraint for a given type of specimen are scarce, but the evidence available is examined, and suggestions are made for specifying the procedure which should be adopted in Standards for fire resistance testing.
