Title: Sustainibility of Aluminium in Construction Practice – Recent Fire Related Research
Source: Book of Abstracts of the 1st International Conference CoMS_2017 / Ivana Banjad Pečur ; Ana Baričević ; Nina Štrimer ; Dubravka Bjegović (ed). - Zagreb : Tiskara Zelina , 2017. 123-123 (ISBN: 978-953-8168-04-8).

The positive attributes of aluminium as a modern building material in construction practice have been used as background for a more intense application of this material type throughout the 21st century. Favourable properties of aluminium include most of the aspects of sustainability within the period of exploitation of the structure. One of the major problems with the application of aluminium in construction industry is the inherent fire resistance which needs further research if aluminium is to be more widely applied in construction practice. This paper describes research activities of an ongoing research project examining the mechanical and creep properties of aluminium alloy EN6082AW T6 exposed to fire. The research presented here is part of a joint research programme (the Croatian Science Foundation project No. UIP-2014-09-5711) conducted by the Universities of Split and Sheffield, whose aim is to explore the influence of creep on the behaviour of steel and aluminium columns in fire, as well as to develop new creep models for structurally relevant steel and aluminium alloys. The output of this research can be used to assess the level of sustainability of aluminium in construction practice with respect to fire resistance requirements.
