Rational Design Methodology for Fire Exposed Load Bearing Structures

Magnusson, Sven Erik LU and Pettersson, Ove LU (1981) In LUTVDG/TVBB--3001--SE 3001.
Abstract
The state-of-art of reliability studies in the area of fire-exposed structures or structural members is illustrated, taking examples from published papers concerning load-bearing building structures of steel, reinforced concrete, and wood. In parallel, trends are described in the present development of rational structural fire design methods, principally adapted to modern loading and safety philosophy for the non-fire state. Statistically derived results are presented for fire-exposed, insulated steel structures in office buildings, giving the breakdown of the total variance in maximum steel temperature and load-bearing capacity into component variances as a function of the insulation characteristics. The safety index and probability of... (More)
The state-of-art of reliability studies in the area of fire-exposed structures or structural members is illustrated, taking examples from published papers concerning load-bearing building structures of steel, reinforced concrete, and wood. In parallel, trends are described in the present development of rational structural fire design methods, principally adapted to modern loading and safety philosophy for the non-fire state. Statistically derived results are presented for fire-exposed, insulated steel structures in office buildings, giving the breakdown of the total variance in maximum steel temperature and load-bearing capacity into component variances as a function of the insulation characteristics. The safety index and probability of failure are compared numerically for different fire design procedures. The data presented are examples of the information which is required as input in a qualified systems analysis of fire exposed load-bearing structures. (Less)
