Gihan Ranasinghe’s current research aims to investigate the behaviour of light gauge steel framed (LSF) truss floor-ceiling systems under ambient and fire conditions and develop suitable fire design guidelines to predict the fire resistance levels (FRLs) of various arrangements of LSF truss floor-ceiling systems using experimental and numerical studies.
