Fire Resistance of Steel and Timber Structures
- Department of Steel and Timber Structures
Advanced methods of modeling of fire and structural analysis (performace based methods) are explained here.
passed 134OK1 or 134OD1A
- Syllabus of lectures:
Summary of the basic principles of fire design
Thermal analysis, fire scenarios
Rate of heat release
Zone models, models of localised fire
Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD)
heat transfer to structural elements exposed to localised fire, unprotected and protected steel elements
Configuration factor, steel elements outside the fire compartment
Advanced methods of glogal structural analysis
Design of composite structures, composite columns using software
Design of aluminium structures
Examples of structural fire design
- Syllabus of tutorials:
Thermal analysis of fire compartment, fire scenarios, zone models, software Ozone
Models of localised fire
Design of composite column using software
Global structural analysis at fire

- Study Objective:
To increase the knowledge of fire engineering methods. The aim is to get the ability to design steel, composite, timber and aluminium structures exposed to fire.
