Structural Fire Loads: Theory and Principles, Hardback Book

Structural Fire Loads: Theory and Principles Hardback


Tested techniques for designing fire-resistant structuresStructural Fire Loads bridges the gap between prescriptive and performance-based methods for the design of fire-resistant buildings.

The book streamlines complex computer analyses so that an approximate analytical expression can be easily used in structural fire load analysis and design. Simplified versions of energy, mass, and momentum equations are provided in dimensionless form with their solutions in tabular form.

Step-by-step examples using standard structural systems, such as beams, trusses, frames, and arches, are also presented in this practicalguide.

Using the proven methods in this book, all types of fires can be addressed in the design process. Coverage includes:Overview of current practiceStructural fire load and computer modelsDifferential equations and assumptionsSimplifications of differential equationsFire load and severity of firesStructural analysis and design
