Actionable strategies for the design and construction of fire-resistant structures
This hands-on guide clearly explains the complex building codes and standards that relate to fire design and presents hands-on techniques engineers can apply to prevent or mitigate the effects of fire in structures. Dedicated chapters discuss specific procedures for steel, concrete, and timber buildings. You will get step-by-step guidance on how to evaluate fire resistance using both testing and calculation methods.
Structural Fire Engineering begins with an introduction to the behavioral aspects of fire and explains how structural materials react when exposed to elevated temperatures. From there, the book discusses the fire design aspects of key codes and standards, such as the International Building Code, the International Fire Code, and the NFPA Fire Code. Advanced topics are covered in complete detail, including residual capacity evaluation of fire damaged structures and fire design for bridges and tunnels.
*Explains the fire design requirements of the IBC, IFC, the NFPA Fire Code, and National Building Code of Canada*Presents design strategies for steel, concrete, and timber structures as well as for bridges and tunnels*Contains downloadable spreadsheets and problems along with solutions for instructors
