Title: Fire safety of concrete structures
Subtitle: Background to BS 8110 fire design

Ref Code: BR468
Authors: T Lennon

Abstract1: Brings together information from testing and research over a number of years. Investigations have found that the experimental results used to develop the tabulated approach in BS 8110 fully supported the provisions of the code in relation to assumed periods of fire resistance. Furthermore in many cases these provisions were found to be conservative. Evidence from performance in real fires over a number of years demonstrates that the tabular approach to determining fire resistance of concrete elements has been effective.
