Where the factored 595-08 for the fire limit state differ from those applied in the tests, the test results should be adjusted, either by using Table 8 or else by means of fire engineering calculation, as appropriate. If the load ratio of the connection is higher than the load ratio of the connecting members the protection to the connection should be increased from that applied to the connecting members to ensure that the connection 59950-8 not fail first.

Variation of specific heat with temperature for steel 6. Code de bonne practique Title in German Stahlbau. This occurs after about 16 minutes.

Although it is based on evaluation of performance of structural steel members exposed to the standard fire curve as defined in BS Part 20 [5]it may also be used in fire engineering assessments when predicted fire temperatures are derived by calculation.

Am Ff M Mc Mcf V f m Exposed surface area of a member per unit length; Applied axial load at the fire limit state, using the factored loads given in 7. At the fire limit state members or sub-assemblies should be assumed to be subject to the heating conditions specified in the standard fire test for the required period of fire resistance, except when analysis is based on the consideration of bz fires.

Design using structural fire standards –

The Stationery Office, Temperatures apply to I and H sections heated on three and four sides and angle and channel sections heated on four sides 22 Table 10? Wherever account is taken of continuity over a support, to ensure adequate ductility, the steel fabric or reinforcing bars used as support reinforcement should satisfy the minimum elongation requirement specified in BS and DD ENV The strength properties of prestressing wires are permanently affected when they 5950-88 heated to temperatures above C.


The effect of wind loads can be ignored when designing for boundary conditions to control external fire spread. Block temperature Aspect ratio 30 min 5950-88 3 R 2 Block temperature for a fire resistance period of: Copyright Copyright subsists in all BSI publications.

Although both codes are quite different in scope and complexity, they are based on a common understanding of the strength of structural steel in fire and also the factors b affect inherent fire resistance.

BS 5950-8:2003

British Steel, Swinden Laboratories, For temperatures higher than the values given, a linear reduction in strength to zero at 1 C may be assumed. NOTE 3 5950-88 values in this table can be used to conservatively determine the web temperature of a steel section by replacing the flange thickness by the web thickness.

You 595-8 experience issues viewing this site b Internet Explorer 9, 10 or One of the most common situations in which temperature gradients have a significant effect on the fire resistance of structural steel is where beams support concrete slabs. Code of practice for fire resistant design Status: A beam whose temperature profile can be defined, for a given fire exposure, may be assessed by calculating its moment capacity Mcf using the elevated temperature profile for the required fire exposure and the appropriate values of the strength retention factor, given in 6.

It is vs known that if it carries a lower load then plasticity will occur at a higher temperature. The variation of specific heat with temperature is shown in Figure 2.

During heating and cooling high stress levels may be generated at the connections with the result that deformation and failure of bolts and welds may occur in either shear or tension. Insulation thickness for re-entrant profiled steel sheets Figure 10? Specification for materials, fabrication and erection? It supersedes BS Measurement of depth into concrete slab?


This method should only be used for passive insulating materials and is not applicable to active materials such as intumescent coatings. The bx capacity Mcf for a composite beam can be determined from: BSSteel, concrete and composite bridges? The variation of thermal elongation with temperature is shown in Figure 4. The copyright notice displayed in this document indicates when the document was last issued. The variation of thermal conductivity with temperature is shown in Figure 3.

Code of practice for design. BSStructural use of steelwork in building?

It is incorporated by Royal Charter. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document including any amendments applies. The deflection may be ignored. A fire limit state should be treated as an accidental limit state.

Annex B normative Re-use of steel after a fire B. Fire resistance of composite slabs with steel decking.

For guidance on limiting temperatures when void fillers are not used, see [2]. If the wall itself provides protection to the steel member, this may be taken into account in assessing the section factor for the member.

For light steel sections such as purlins and rails, replacement rather than 5950-88 is usually the most economic proposition. Numerical values are unaltered. This can be achieved by calculating the 5950- protection thickness assuming the connecting members have a load ratio equal to the connection and applying this thickness over the connection area.
