This paper summarises work carried out under a project funded by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM). The primary objective of the project is to provide guidance to the industry to encourage a satisfactory level of adoption of EN 1992 during the period of coexistence with UK National codes. To achieve this objective two publications have been prepared. The first is a Companion Document describing the scope and coverage of EN 1992 Part 1 while the second is a more detailed Handbook for practitioners dealing with the provisions of the fire part of the Eurocode, EN 1992-1-2. Many of the issues related to the main part of the concrete code have been addressed in some detail in a previous paper published in The Structural Engineer1. Therefore, this paper will concentrate on the development of design guidance for the fire design of concrete structures. It is anticipated that both the Companion Document and the Fire Design Handbook will be published on the ODPM web site.
