Modern building services cost up to three times as much as the structural steelwork in a typical commercial building. Steel frame design needs to be considered in the context of the overall building cost, where early design decisions concerning structural layouts have a significant impact on the building services.

A full-scale, non-uniform natural fire test on a cold-formed steel portal frame building is described. The results of the test are used to validate a non-linear, elasto-plastic, finite element shell idealisation, for the purposes of later forming the basis of a performance-based design approach for cold-formed steel portal frames at elevated temperatures.

"My career has been all about good fortune" says Arup Deputy Chairman Tristram Carfrae. From early years assisting mercurial genius Peter Rice to acting as engineer for man-of-the-moment Thomas Heatherwick’s Garden Bridge in London, he has worked with the greats of engineering and architecture. Now Carfrae, the designer of the stunning Beijing Olympic Aquatic Centre, is confirmed as one too, as the 2014 recipient of the Institution's Gold Medal.
