Extension of data sets for a more reliable prediction of the fire resistance of finger joint connections Fink, Gerhard; Klippel, Michael; Frangi, Andrea


Large-scale fire tests are time intensive and expensive. Thus, usually only a limited number of test results are produced. In order to produce a more reliable description of the parameters of interest, the data set can be extended. This paper shows, as an example, how fire resistance tests investigating different parameters can be connected and further how censored test results can be considered in the evaluation of the results. The goal of the whole investigation is to extend the information of a limited number of fire tests in order to produce a more reliable description of the test results.
