Whilst the majority of the text is concerned with structural design, aspects such as escape, evacuation and smoke control are also covered. The text gives the background to the limit state fire design of structures using both hand calculations and computer simulation. It covers design both to current British Standards and Eurocodes for all common structural materials. The book commences with an overview of the rationale of limit state fire design before going on to discuss, in general terms, the methods that may be used

This text details standard industry design decisions, and offers expert design advice, with relevant historical data. Dr John Purkiss is a chartered civil and structural engineer/consultant and former lecturer in structural engineering at Aston University, UK.

John A. Purkiss, Long-Yuan Li. Paperback £6. 9. This text details standard industry design decisions, and offers expert design advice, with relevant historical data. It includes extensive data on materials’ behaviour and modeling - concrete, steel, composite steel-concrete, timber, masonry, and aluminium. While weighted to the fire sections of the Eurocodes, this book also includes historical data to allow older structures to be assessed.

J. A Purkiss, Consultant, previously lectured Structural Engineering at Aston University. His main areas of research were the behaviour of concrete, concrete composite materials and concrete structures at elevated temperatures, the experimental determination of the effects of spalling and its modelling using coupled heat and mass transfer, the determination of the characteristics of fire damaged concrete structures. * Design methods based on the fire sections of the new Structural Eurocodes* Worked calculations and examples clearly illustrate the effect of temperature rise and structural performance of structural elements* Essential reading for Structural Engineers, Building Designers, Architects, Fire Engineers and Building Control Officers
