Structural fire design

A guide to selecting the appropriate method for the design of elements in the fire condition is given in Figure 1 below.

A chapter covering the structural fire design of concrete structures to Eurocode 2, Part 1-2: structural fire design is available in the publication How to Design Concrete Structures to Eurocode 2.
