Fire resistance tests were conducted on loaded beam and post-beam joints of heavy hardwood (ZELKOVA) designed for traditional temple buildings. The tests revealed the followings: (1) predictability of the structural fire resistance of ZELKOVA beam with safety margin by the assessment of the bending buckling. (2) applicability of the traditional beam and post-beam joint designs to the Quasi-fireproof construction.
