Natural fire safety for buildings
The fire resistance of structures is one of the main brakes concerning the development of steel in buildings. This handicap of steel is in order to disappear due to the results of recent researches that permit to dimension the steel structures by considering the natural fire and the active fire fighting measures. In the frame of an ECSC financed research, an interactive calculation software has been developed with the aim of enabling engineering offices to perform easily calculations under natural fire conditions. This paper describes this new tool that should contribute to the promotion of steel by making the dimensioning under fire conditions easier and more competitive.
