It is a commonly held view that Part A of the Building Regulations is the domain of the structural engineer, and that Part B is the domain of the Architect or Fire Engineer. But Chartered Structural Engineers are bound by their professional Code of Conduct to comply with the Building Regulations as a whole.
B3(1) of the Building Regulations requires that buildings “shall be designed and constructed so that, in the event of a fire, [their] stability will be maintained for a reasonable period”.
This lecture will provide an overview of relevant regulation and the historical basis for the current predominant structural fire design approaches used by structural engineers, and is motivated by a desire to assist Chartered Structural Engineers in discharging their professional duties with respect to fire.
Prof Luke Bisby FIStructE holds a Personal Chair in Fire and Structures within the School of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh. He is a member of the Standing Committee on Structural Safety (SCOSS) and Confidential Reporting on Structural Safety (CROSS), and he is Co-Editor-in-Chief of Fire Safety Journal - the official journal of the International Association for Fire Safety Science.
