Abstract

Temperature prediction of steelwork, a requirement for fire resistance assessment, is performed on the basis of theory of heat transfer between fire and steel. Current analytical methods stipulated in modern design codes enable the temperature prediction calculations to be carried out efficiently with reasonable accuracy. Recent research shows that the analytical methods currently available in design codes may not suit all design situations. This paper reviews the recent development in this area and compares the results by the latest methods available for fire resistance calculations with those by the Eurocodes.
