Furthermore, there is a parametrized fire curve, but this is intended to use for the general design of fire protection according to DIN EN 1993-1-2. In this case, the standard time-temperature curve is the most widely used fire curve, because most of the experimental studies on fire protection materials were performed according to this curve. In contrast, the external fire curve is not of a high importance as the temperature of this curve rises up to 660 C and therefore, it is not suitable for a longer time of fire exposure with the fire protection material. The hydrocarbon fire curve is similar to the tunnel fire curve as the temperature of this curve rises up to 1350 C and the increase is even steeper than in the case of any other fire curve.

If parametric fire exposure is used as a fire scenario, the load reduction effect of the structural component must be ensured. No failure of the component should occur during the fire phase, including the cooling phase, or within the required fire resistance time. Appendix A of EN 1991-1-2 provides a parametric temperature-time curve. This fire scenario is no longer permitted in Germany as there is the binding National Annex to EN 1991-1-2 that must be applied. This scenario was replaced by design fire, This allows for a complete description of a possible fire scenario; that is: from the development phase to the compartment fire phase to the decay phase.

The curve sections are limited by distinctive points that result in the distribution of the rate of heat release. When determining temperature values, it is necessary to distinguish between ventilation controlled fires and fuel controlled fires. Moreover, the application of this natural fire model is limited. It applies to surface areas with an area of up to 400 m and a height of up to 6 m. In the case of the ventilation controlled design fires, the characteristic value of the maximum rate of heat release can be calculated using the equations provided in Appendix A.

In the Eurocode series of European standards (EN) related to construction, Eurocode 3: Design of steel structures (abbreviated EN 1993 or, informally, EC 3) describes how to design of steel structures, using the limit state design philosophy.

EN 1993-1-2 deals with the design of steel structures for the accidental situation of fire exposure and it has to be used in conjunction with EN 1993-1-1 and EN 1991-1-2. This part only identifies differences from, or supplements to, normal temperature design. EN 1993-1-2 deals only with passive methods of fire protection.

EN 1993-1-3 gives design requirements for cold-formed thin gauge members and sheeting. It applies to cold-formed steel products made from coated or uncoated thin gauge hot or cold rolled sheet or strip, that have been cold-formed by such processes as cold-rolled forming or press-braking. It may also be used for the design of profiled steel sheeting for composite steel and concrete slabs at the construction stage, see EN 1994. The execution of steel structures made of cold-formed thin gauge members and sheeting is covered in EN 1090.

EN 1993-1-8 gives design methods for the design of joints subject to predominantly static loading using steel grades S235, S275, S355 and S460. More specifically, it gives detailed application rules to determine the static design resistances of uniplanar and multiplanar joints in lattice structures composed of circular, square or rectangular hollow sections, and of uniplanar joints in lattice structures composed of combinations of hollow sections with open sections (space frames and trusses).

EN 1993-1-11 gives design rules for structures with tension components made of steel which due to their connections are adjustable and replaceable. These components due to their adjustability and replaceability properties are mostly pre-fabricated delivered on-site and installed into the structure as a whole. Non adjustable and replaceable components are out of the scope of EN 1993-1-11.

EN 1993-2 gives a general basis for the structural design of steel bridges and steel parts of composite bridges. It gives provisions that supplement, modify or supersede the equivalent provisions given in the various parts of EN 1993-1. This standard is concerned only with the resistance, serviceability and durability of bridge structures. Other aspects of design are not considered.

EN 1993-3-2 applies to the structural design of vertical steel chimneys of circular or conical section. It covers chimneys that are cantilevered, supported at intermediate levels or guyed. It is concerned only with the requirement for resistance (strength, stability and fatigue) of steel chimneys. The term Chimney is used to refer to:

EN 1993-4-1 provides principles and application rules for the structural design of steel silos of circular or rectangular plan-form, being free standing or supported and is concerned only with the requirements for resistance and stability of steel silos.

EN 1993-5 gives design rules for steel sheet piling and bearing piles to supplement the generic rules in EN 1993-1 and is intended to be used with Eurocodes EN 1990 - Basis of design, EN 1991 - Actions on structures and EN 1997-1 for Geotechnical Design.

EN 1993-6 gives principles and application rules for the structural design of crane runaway beams and other crane supporting structures including columns and other member fabricated from steel. This part is intended to be used with Eurocode EN 1991-1 and it covers overhead crane runaways inside buildings and outdoor overhead crane runaways.

Structural fire design Structural fire design is performed for every stress case. The structural fire design is performed according to Eurocode 5, part 1-2, reduced cross section method.. Connections properties you can specify are:steel plate type, regular or BMF, plate thickness, the degree of stiffness of connections, the type and size of the connection nails. You can also select to use single or multiple plates in the joints with more than two members. Splices are designed automatically for long timber members. Eurocode 6, Design of masonry structures

The Eurocodes are a set of structural design standards, developed by CEN (European Committee for Standardisation), to cover the design of all types of structures in steel, concrete, timber, masonry and aluminium. In the UK, they are published by BSI under the designations BS EN 1990 to BS EN 1999; each of these ten Eurocodes is published in several Parts and each Part is accompanied by a National Annex that implements the CEN document and adds certain UK-specific provisions.

The article introduces the parts of EN 1993 (Eurocode 3) that are required when designing a steel framed building and briefly introduces EN 1994 (Eurocode 4), for composite steel and concrete structures, and EN 1992 (Eurocode 2), which covers the design of the concrete elements in composite structures.

The methods given in BS EN 1991-1-2[9] should be used to determine the thermal and mechanical actions that act on structures exposed to fire. The values of actions determined should be used when carrying out fire engineering design to Part 1-2 of the relevant material Eurocode. The values of actions determined are considered to be accidental actions.

BS EN 1993-1[33] Eurocode 3: Design of steel structures comprises a set of general rules in twelve parts (BS EN 1993-1-1[20] to BS EN 1993-1-12[27]) for all types of steel structure and additional rules in separate Parts for structures other than buildings, e.g. BS EN 1993-2[28] for bridges. When designing a building structure of rolled sections and plate girders, the following parts of BS EN 1993-1[33] will be required.

SCI has produced a series of guides covering the application of Eurocode 3, as well as an Introduction (SCI P361) and a Concise Guide (SCI P362). These cover all the essential rules for steel building design in accordance with the UK National Annexes.

The rules in BS EN 1993-1-1[20] relate to structural steel grades S235 to S460 in accordance with BS EN 10025[35], BS EN 10210[36] or BS EN 10219[37] and thus cover all the structural steels likely to be used in buildings. In exceptional circumstances, components might use higher strength grades; BS EN 1993-1-12[27] gives guidance on the use of higher strength steels. For the design of stainless steel components and structures, reference should be made to BS EN 1993-1-4[23].

BS EN 1993-1-8[25] gives guidance for the design of joints subject to predominantly static loading. The steel grades covered are S235, S275, S355 and S460. BS EN 1993-1-8[25] uses the so-called component model to identify the resistance of each component making up a joint. Consideration of each of these resistances allows the joint resistance to be identified.

However, it should be noted that these design rules were developed for structures subject to fatigue such as bridges and crane supporting structures, and it is acknowledged that their use for buildings where fatigue plays a minor role is extremely safe-sided. SCI publication P419 presents modified steel thickness limits which may be used in buildings where fatigue is not a design consideration. These new limits have been derived using exactly the same approach behind the Eurocode design rules and implement the UK National Annex requirements, but crucially reduce the crack growth due to fatigue. Further background is available in a technical article in the September 2017 issue of NSC magazine.

It also refers to BS EN 1992-1-1[18] for the properties of reinforcing steel. However, it should be noted that BS EN 1994-1-1[29] permits the design value of the modulus of elasticity for reinforcing steel to be taken as equal to that for structural steel given in BS EN 1993-1-1[20], i.e. 210 kN/mm rather than 200 kN/mm.

BS EN 1994-1-1[29] gives the design shear resistance of a headed stud connector as the smaller of the shear resistance of the stud and the crushing strength of the concrete around it. When used with profiled steel sheeting, a reduction factor, based on the geometry of the deck and the height of the stud, is used to reduce the resistance of the shear connectors. Stud connectors have sufficient ductility to develop plastic behaviour, provided that certain limits are observed if there is only partial shear connection. 041b061a72
