Through real-life case studies and examples, learn about the importance of fire safety in structures and how to improve it.

Structural fire engineering has the potential to improve fire safety of composite structures and optimise resource allocation, through better understanding of the effect fire has on structures. 

The presenters considered fire engineering design of composite steel/concrete structures and outlined fire safety and fire resistance requirements.

They discussed the key structural fire engineering design methods to achieve fire safety requirements and used case studies to illustrate their application in practice.  
 

Reasons to watch

  • Develop a good understanding of an important topic of structural safety that is generally not taught in structural engineering courses

  • Gain awareness of how composite structures may benefit from structural fire engineering 

  • Learn from case studies about the practical application of structural fire engineering in composite structure design 

Intended for

Structural engineers, fire engineers, civil engineers, architects and fire protection engineers.

Florian Block is an Associate Director at BuroHappold.

Tom Lennon is the Principal Consultant for Structural Fire Engineering at BRE. Over the last thirty years Tom has been responsible for numerous large-scale experimental fires on single elements, sub-assemblies and complete structures including high-rise buildings. He is an expert in the behaviour of structures in fire. He has developed extensive contacts with colleagues in the steel, concrete and timber industries and has worked with representatives from both the active and passive fire protection industries.

Yong Wang is a Professor of Structural and Fire Engineering at the University of Manchester. He has over thirty years of experience in research, teaching and specialist consulting on fire engineering of structures, in particular steel and composite structures. Yong is a member of BSI committees on fire resistance and composite structures. He has been the only UK member on Eurocode project teams responsible for revision of Eurocodes EN 1993-1-2 and EN 1994-1-2.
