- EN 560.434 & 560.634 Structural Fire Engineering
This course discusses the analysis and design of structures exposed to fire. It covers the fundamentals of fire behavior, heat transfer, the effects of fire loading on materials and structural systems, and the principles and design methods for fire resistance design. Particular emphasis is placed on the advanced modeling and computational tools for performance-based design. Applications of innovative methods for fire resistance design in large structural engineering projects, such as stadiums and tall buildings, are also presented.
