Progressive collapse assessment of steel structures under fire

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper presents an assessment framework for structural behavior under static and time-dependent fire scenarios. The proposed method is an effort to associate the characteristics of the initial cause (i.e. the elevated temperature due to structural fire) with the building’s response. The effect of the time-series used to perform a transient thermal analysis on the overall performance of the building is indicated. Relative applications of the method and further improvements are discussed.
