    Abstract

    A set of structural Eurocodes dealing with the basic materials used in construction (concrete, steel, wood, masonry) has been accepted in Europe as a pre-standard. A part of each covers Structural Fire Design. In Eurocode 1, thermal and mechanical actions are given. In Eurocodes 2 to 6, calculation methods for assessing fire resistance of structures can refer either to tabulated data or to simple calculation methods or advanced methods. When fire protection material is needed to increase the fire resistance, necessary data are obtained from fire test results.
