Both BS Part 8[1] and Eurocodes are available for the design of structural steel in fire in the UK. The Eurocodes suite consists of: BS EN [2], BS. Reference is also made to British Steel publication “Design Examples to BS : Part 1: (2nd Edition) on which this example is based. Table numbering. Buy BS Structural use of steelwork in building. Code of practice for fire resistant design from SAI Global.

Gx but x C x G is the temperature in C at location x; is the distance in mm from angle root, measured hs shown in Figure C. Variation of specific heat with temperature for normal weight and lightweight concrete?

Fire protection thickness modification factor Table 12? Where the load ratio is 0. Various BSI electronic information services are also available which give details on all its products and services.

Design using structural fire standards –

The variation of thermal conductivity with temperature is shown in Figure 3. The following strains should not be exceeded, unless it has been demonstrated in fire resistance tests that a higher level of strain may be satisfactorily developed in the steel and that the fire protection material has the ability to remain intact: NOTE For further information, see [10].

Key 1 Concrete slab Figure C. However, the numerical values are unaltered. Where test evidence is available, it might be possible to reduce the protection to the bolts of the connection.

This is a mechanism of calculating the actual time-temperature relationship in a compartment of known dimensions and occupancy and removes historic dependence on the standard fire test. It brings together in one document many of the methods of achieving fire resistance for structural steelwork.

Code of practice for design. Summary of pages This document comprises a front cover, an inside front cover, pages ii to iv, pages 1 to 37 and a back cover.


NOTE Design data for continuous composite slabs with mesh reinforcement may be obtained from [9] and [10]. Variation of thermal conductivity with temperature for normal weight and lightweight concrete 6.

The strength retention factors for bolts and welds are given in Table 59950-8. The deflection may be ignored.

Temperature distribution through a composite floor with profiled steel sheeting Depth into slaba mm C Temperature distribution for a fire resistance period of: Simple member fire design tools for the calculation of limiting temperaturescalled critical temperatures in the Eurocodes of protected and unprotected non-composite, restained beams and axially loaded protected and unprotected columns are available.

For guidance on limiting temperatures when bss fillers are not used, see [2]. 595-8 strength properties of prestressing wires are permanently affected when they are heated to temperatures above C. Wind loads should only be applied to buildings where the height to eaves is greater than eight metres and only considered when checking the design of the primary elements of the framework.

Fire safety of bare external structural steel. A fire limit state should be treated as an accidental limit state. Any specified requirements for the insulation and integrity of compartment walls and floors, including any incorporated members, should also be satisfied.

It is normally considered that a fully loaded section has a load ratio of 0. It should be noted that the Eurocodes have introduced the concept of section classification into fire design, something that was absent from BS Part 8 [1].

BS 5950-8:2003

In addition, two design examples which illustate the design procedures for protected and unprotected columns, and composite and non-composite beams in a two storey and a seven storey building can be accessed. Annex C normative Simplified method of calculation for beams with shelf angles C. Buying standards Orders for all BSI, international and foreign standards publications should be addressed to Customer Services.

NOTE Further guidance is given in [11]. A simplified calculation method for beams with shelf angles is given in Annex C. Numerical values are unaltered.


After a fire, the surface condition corrosion protection system must be checked for integrity. Although it is based on evaluation of performance of structural steel members exposed to the standard fire curve as defined in BS Part 20 [5]it may also be used in fire engineering assessments when predicted fire temperatures are derived by calculation.

Information on standards BSI provides a wide range of information on national, European and international standards through its Library and its Technical Help to Exporters Service.

Block temperature Vs ratio 30 min 2 3 R 2 Block temperature for a fire resistance period of: This 59950-8 from an analysis of the live and 55950-8 load factors for ambient 1.

Specification for materials, fabrication and erection: In assessing the effects of fire on an external steel member, the possibility of flames being deflected by the wind and causing forced ventilation should be considered. Ceilings should be constructed in accordance with BS If it can be shown that, in the event of a fire, any such steelwork would not be heated to a temperature that would render it unable to maintain its function, then the water-filling may be considered to give adequate fire resistance.

Building design using cold formed steel sections: For temperatures higher than the values given, a linear reduction in strength to zero at 1 C may be assumed. Design temperature for members in bending. The properties of Grade 4.

CIRIA special publication Any weld below the angle should be ignored.

For sway or non-sway frames a load ratio of 0.
