Introduction to the fire safety engineering of structures:
This guidance has been prepared to provide the engineer, architect, regulatory authorities and other construction professionals with the inspiration to develop safer and better value solutions for the performance of building structures during fire. It includes:
Guide to the advanced fire safety engineering of structures:
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.
