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.
