Description

Recent events have given international prominence to structural fire engineering – notably Broadgate, the World Trade Center collapse and the Windsor Tower, Madrid fire – as well as the enlightening studies at the Cardington project. As a result, structural fire engineering has attracted the increasingly interest not only of fire engineers and structural engineers but also of researchers and students. And studies in the past five or so years have generated a vast number of findings. Whereas most recent books have been mainly concerned with dissemination of principles encapsulated in established codes of practice such as the Eurocodes, this work addresses in depth: Global structural behaviour and modelling, Progressive collapse of structures in fire and the importance of connection robustness, Integrity of compartmentation in fire, Structural fire engineering under realistic fire conditions and its implications for material properties, The limitations of research results and design methods... ...and, conversely, the unexploited potential for advanced fire engineering design This book identifies how to use advanced fire engineering design to improve structural safety in fire and reduce construction costs, and draws on the working group on fire resistance of the COST C26 European network project.
