    Abstract

    8 designs of traditional style bare timber eaves reinforced with conventional building materials to block penetration of an external fire into the building are proposed for the restoration and renovation of historic townhouses in Kyoto. The full scale fire resistance tests on the integrity and the thermal insulation of these designs against external fires revealed that these designs should be rated as either Fire Protective Construction or 45-60min Quasi-fireproof Construction.
