Fire resistance design of steel framed buildings (P375)

This design guide provides a general overview of the fire design of steel and composite structures in accordance with the Eurocodes, introduces the basis of design for fire situations and the criteria that need to be met. (Published 2012)
SKU: P375
£50.00

Design for fire resistance is a key requirement for most steel framed buildings. Beams and slabs are required to provide a certain level of load bearing resistance in defined fire situations; slabs are also required to provide insulation and integrity in order to limit the spread of fire. This design guide provides a general overview of the fire design of steel and composite structures in accordance with the Eurocodes, introduces the basis of design for fire situations and the criteria that need to be met. It explains how to determine the heat flux transferred to the members and how to determine their resistance at elevated temperatures. It notes that the Eurocodes cover both simple and advanced calculation models and gives guidance on the use of the simple model.
