Abstract

This paper presents a new conceptual framework for travelling fires in large compartments with fire resistant islands in order to ensure that the structure is able to resist more realistic fire exposures expected in such compartments, commonly found in modern office buildings. The key guiding principle in developing the proposed design fire for large compartments is to achieve a good balance between the enormous complexity and variability of such fires against the practicability and simplicity required by a structural engineer in safely characterising this load.
