Fire resistance of reinforced concrete constructions: models and methods of calculation

Fire safety in construction

Basic problems and methods of the evaluation of fire resistance for reinforced concrete constructions are presented. The existing procedures of solving of the static aspect of fire resistance task are analysed. A number of promising trends in development of the solution of fire resistance problems for reinforced concrete constructions is given. A program for solving the thermo-technical aspect of the task of the fire resistance of reinforced concrete constructions is developped.
