Abstract

Performance-based design codes for fire design are becoming more widely available. To be used to full effect they require numerical modelling of heated structures to be undertaken which is a challenging task. This paper discusses the requirements of numerically modelling heated structures with reference to simple cases. It proposes two benchmark tests against which analysis tools can be checked to ensure they are capturing all the required effects.
