Material science and structural engineering: a chance to make a difference
This CPD module, sponsored by Steel for Life, provides an introduction to fire protection of new steel-framed buildings. It will provide an overview of the performance of steel in fire, legislation and standards on fire resistance, fire resistance periods and fire protection options for steel-framed buildings.
Dr Al Fisher, Head of Computational Development at BuroHappold Engineering, discusses how projects can benefit from communication by all parties through the process.
Matthew Gilbert and Paul Shepherd outline new methods developed as part of the UK government-funded BUILD-OPT research project, and how these can be applied to a range of design projects.
