An overview of the advanced methods available for designing structures for fire resistance. The guidance can also be purchased as part of a two-volume package.

Here, the range of simple design approaches and useful background information provided in Introduction to the fire safety engineering of structures, is expanded.

Each stage of the advanced design process (modelling the fire, determining the heat trasfer to the structure, and high temperature structural analysis) is discussed. Case studies show how these approaches can result in a better understanding of structural behaviour during a fire.

Also available to purchase as part of a two-volume package with Introduction to the fire safety engineering of structures.
