Calibration of Eurocode1: actions on structures - part 1.2: actions on structures exposed to fire

A calibration study and review has been carried out on the recently published Eurocode 1-1-2 on Fire Actions based upon a major study undertaken led by Corus Fire Engineering. Much of the Code can be supported by both recent and established analyses of experimental data and this is reflected in accepting the Normative and part of the Informative Annexes of the document. For some clauses, additional complementary information has been provided to broaden their scope of application. Where clauses in the Informative Annexes cannot be supported, alternative guidance is provided and this has been drawn from existing fire engineering design codes in the UK From this work, the author has drafted a National Annex, which will be published by the British Standards Institution for public consultation during 2004. This paper provides the technical background to the more important decisions made in drafting the National Annex. Dr B. R.
