Lecturer:
František Wald (guarantor), Petr Kuklík
Tutor:
Lukáš Velebil
Supervisor:
Department of Steel and Timber Structures
Synopsis:

The course deals with the design of steel, concrete, composite steel and timber structures exposed to fire. Teaching is focused on the design of basic examples, calculation by elements.

Requirements:

Basic skills of statics, theoretical mechanics and design of structures.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Introduction, repetition of basics of thermal and mechanical global analysis at elevated temperature, available software, calculation in fire legislative

2. Steel and concrete material properties at elevated temperature

3. Heat transfer into unprotected elements

4. Steel structures, experiments, desing of elements - classification, tension, compression, bending

5. Composite steel and concrete structues - design of elements - beam, floor

6. Composite steel and concrete structues - design of elements - column, slim-floor structure

7. Robbustnes, collapse of WTC1,2,7; Connections of structures at elevated temperatures

8. Partially and fully protected elements - experiments, modelling, software analysis

9. Alluminium structures -properties of material, heat transfer, classification, design of elements

10. Basics of timber charing, burning, change of physical and mechanical properties, degradation of timber structures due to fire

11. Design of timber structures at elevated temperatures

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Design of steel beam, calculation of critical temperature, fire resistance based on charts

2. Calculation of gas temperature in a fire compartment (standard temp. curve, parametric temp. curve), calculation of fire resistance of beam encased into concrete floor, heat transfer by the aid of incremental method.

3. Evaluation of fire resistance of compressed column, design of fire protection.

4. Design of composite steel and concrete beam, protected or unprotected.

5. Design of timber beam and timber column for required fire resistance.

6. Design of a timber joint with mechanical connection for a given fire resistance.

Study Objective:

Learn the basics of designing steel, composite steel and concrete and timber structures exposed to fire.
