Overview

Structural Fire Engineering gives practical design guidance on the application of structural fire engineering to specialist structural engineers; bringing together fire engineering and structural engineering - disciplines which are interlinked in design of structures.

Structural Fire Engineering discusses the European standards in the context of fire engineering design and conformity to the requirements of the regulations. Containing a number of worked examples to illustrate the options for design, this book will primarily demystify the subject of structural fire engineering and identify the available design options to fulfil statutory requirements. The final chapters deal with specific issues which have arisen over the last few years and identify gaps in knowledge in relation to the performance of buildings in fire.
