Structural Design for Fire Safety, Second Edition begins with the fundamentals of fires and fire safety, giving an introduction to real fire exposure and the response of structures to such fires and outlining the important contribution of structural fire resistance to overall fire safety. Methods of calculating fire severity and achieving fire resistance are described, including fire performance of the main structural materials including structural steel, reinforced concrete and timber construction. Particularly valuable are the design sections, where the earlier material is synthesised and recommendations are made for rational design of building structures exposed to fires. This thoroughly updated edition includes a new chapter on composite steel-concrete construction, updated references, building codes, case studies and worked examples as well as describing new developments of the past ten years, including advanced calculation methods and computer programs.
