Book review: Structural Design for Fire Safety (2nd ed.)

The first edition of this book, authored only by Prof. Buchanan, was published in 2002. It was the first comprehensive publication in the field of structural fire engineering and a key reference for international undergraduate/postgraduate courses in this area.

The field of structural fire engineering is rapidly evolving and there have been a number of developments since 2001 – notably the collapse of the World Trade Center towers in New York and subsequent research on the structural fire response of complex structures, and the rally in innovation of structural forms, construction methods and materials (modular construction, high-strength materials, etc).

In this second edition, Prof. Buchanan was joined by Dr Abu and the authors tried to fill some of these gaps.
