Tested techniques for designing fire-resistant structures
"Structural Fire Loads" bridges the gap between prescriptive and
performance-based methods for the design of fire-resistant
buildings. The book streamlines complex computer analyses so that
an approximate analytical expression can be easily used in
structural fire load analysis and design.
Simplified versions of energy, mass, and momentum equations are
provided in dimensionless form with their solutions in tabular
form. Step-by-step examples using standard structural systems, such
as beams, trusses, frames, and arches, are also presented in this
practical guide. Using the proven methods in this book, all types
of fires can be addressed in the design process.
Coverage includes: Overview of current practice Structural fire
load and computer models Differential equations and assumptions
Simplifications of differential equations Fire load and severity of
fires Structural analysis and design
