Abstract text:
Fire safety regulations can have a major impact on many aspects of the overall design of a building, including layout, aesthetics, function, and cost. Rapid developments in modern building technology in the last decades often have resulted in unconventional structures and design solutions. Because the world is developed continuously, the physical size of buildings increases continually; there is a tendency to build large underground car parks, warehouses, and shopping complexes. As a result, we have a worldwide movement to replace prescriptive building codes with ones based on performance. The paper presents the basic principles for the designing process of reinforced concrete elements under fire.
Key Words:
Concrete; Reinforcement; Fire; Safety; Temperature.
