PBS Program Name:
ARC 17/18 Discovery
Grant Program:
Discovery Early Career Researcher Award
Grant Activity:
Fire resistant and lightweight wall systems using innovative blocks
Purpose:
This project aims to develop an innovative block with lightweight and fire resistant characteristics by using Pumice and Perlite materials, followed by wall systems using the blocks. For this purpose, it will use material and thermal characterization studies, thermal and structural numerical models and fire tests of the new blocks, wall panels and a compartment. This project will generate new knowledge on lightweight blocks and fire safety, and develops cost-effective fire safe solutions for mid-rise buildings and bushfire safe rooms.
