Title: Structural fire engineering design: introduction

Ref Code: DG484
Authors: T Lennon

Abstract1: This is the first of a suite of Digests containing guidance on structural fire engineering design. The intention is to produce performance based guidance that brings together fire engineering and structural engineering and provides a framework within which designers are free to develop site specific solutions based on real performance criteria. The Digests contain information complementary to the existing and emerging fire engineering codes and standards. Each may be used in isolation or as part of the full suite. This Digest introduces the subject, provides essential background information and places the information in the context of the existing regulatory framework of the UK building regulations.
