Resistance of members at elevated temperature (in fire conditions) is a key component of structural design. The Eurocodes describe how resistances may be calculated, including simple methods which are readily applied to common structural forms.
SCI has published new design guidance in P403 covering the resistance of beams and columns in Fire. This publication presents two numerical worked examples demonstrating the calculation of the critical temperature and resistance at elevated temperature. The examples cover both unprotected and protected solutions, using the simple calculation methods given in the Eurocodes.
This technical report was prepared to offer guidance on the selection of steel sub-grade, in accordance with BS EN 1993-1-10, the associated UK National Annex and other non-contradictory complementary information.
This publication provides a set of clauses, to be used in bridge project specifications, that responds to the options and alternatives allowed in BS EN 1090-2, the execution standard for steelwork designed to Eurocode 3. The clauses are arranged under the headings in BS EN 1090-2 and for each clause a commentary is given, explaining the context of or background to the clause.
