   schema:description "This book is an introduction to the structural design of buildings and building elements exposed to fire. Structural fire resistance is discussed in relation to overall concepts of building fire safety. The book brings together, from many sources, a large volume of material relating to the fire resistance of building structures. The book starts with fundamentals, giving an introduction to fires and fire safety, outlining the important contribution of structural fire resistance to overall fire safety. Methods of calculating fire severity and achieving fire resistance are described, including fire performance of the main structural materials. The most important parts of the book are the design sections, where the earlier material is synthesized and recommendations are made for rational design of building elements and structures exposed to fire. This book refers to codes and standards as little as possible. The emphasis is on understanding structural behaviour in fire from first principles, allowing structural fire safety to be provided using rational engineering methods based on national structural design codes."@en ;
