Applications of Structural Fire Engineering

Focusing on utilisation of software tools.

Due to EU funding moved to Prague 29 April 2011 with COST IFER meeting  on 30 April 2011

About the Conference

European practice in structural engineering is tending more and more to accept the benefits to be gained from performance-based approaches, supported by advanced analytical methods and software tools, to the design of structures for fire resistance. This conference will focus on the application of advanced fire-resistant design methods, both manual and computational, for concrete, steel and timber structures. Particularly relevant themes will be fire modelling, simulation of the heat transfer between fire and structure, and modelling of structural behaviour at elevated temperatures using numerical methods or software implementations of the structural Eurocodes. Case studies showing successful applications of performance-based structural fire safety design as well as new research studies on the relationships between experimental findings, calculation methods and FE simulations are welcome. Acknowledged experts and specialists in design against fire from all over the World will participate, thus offering a unique opportunity to share ideas and to acquire knowledge.
