- How concrete, steel, composites, FRP and timber construction behaves in fire
- Covers columns, slabs, walls, beams, floors, bolts in buildings, bridges, tunnels and more
- Test results, numerical modeling, structural health and fire protection
This volume offers original research on the fire behavior of building components made from concrete, steel, composites, glasses and timber. Its 135 chapters, written by researchers from 26 nations, contain key technical information on how fire affects widely used construction materials in multiple configurations. Attention is placed on new testing and modeling approaches, as well as on structural health monitoring and strategies for protection. The findings in this book will be of benefit to design and fire safety engineers.
