AbstractThis publication describes a unique approach for evaluating the fire hazard to steel constructions and providing adequate protection where required. The fire load of a compartment is taken as the dominant variable and the structure must be able to resist it in case of an ignition. On this basis the design of a fire-resistant structure proceeds according to well-known principles of heat transfer and structural behavior.
