Product code: OP34
Brand: other
A.H. Buchanan
An introduction to the structural design of buildings and building elements exposed to fire. Structural fire resistance is discussed in relation to overall concepts of building fire safety. Methods of calculating fire severity and achieving fire resistance are described, including fire performance of the main structural materials. Individual chapters address the design of steel, concrete, and timber structures, providing fire-resistance ratings, thermal properties, and mechanical properties at elevated temperatures. It successfully bridges the information gap between fire safety engineers, structural engineers and building inspectors.
