This report investigates in-plane load carrying behavior of a fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) wall exposed to localized flashover conditions. The structural behavior under ambient and fire conditions was analyzed using engineering science principles to gain insight into the mechanisms behind the behavior. Individual wall components and a scaled assembly were tested at ambient temperatures providing a baseline to compare with fire test results. Two 8x4 foot FRP assemblies exposed to fire conditions were evaluated to determine their load carrying behavior.
