Future Eurocodes and Structural Fire Design

In the United Kingdom, structural fire protection in buildings is generally based on prescriptive specifications, to meet the performance requirements set out in the regulations and the statutory guidance on fire safety. Structural engineers may therefore find that the proposed methods for calculating structural fire protection set out in the draft Eurocodes are different and novel, and it may be advantageous for them to gain a closer understanding of the fire engineering principles underlying these calculation methods.
