- The European Commission together with European Committee for Standardisation organized and supported on 27-28 November 2012 in Brussels, Belgium – International workshop with worked examples: STRUCTURAL FIRE DESIGN. In the workshop took part 117 participants from 28 countries. Author of this paper was in Brussels the only representative from the Slovak Republic. The workshop sessions presented the fire resistance assessment of structures according to the Eurocodes. Each session focused on a specific structural material (steel, steel and concrete composite, concrete, masonry, and timber with the exception of aluminium) and addressed the principles and design methods followed by worked example(s) . Definitions of actions in fire situations were also presented with basic principles and examples at the beginning of the workshop sessions.
The principal objectives of the workshop were to:
transfer knowledge and information to representatives of key organisations/institutions, industry and technical associations in the Member States of European Committee for Standardisation;
provide state-of-the-art training material, background information and worked examples to Eurocodes trainers and users;
facilitate exchange of views, networking and cooperation.
Contribution includes review of background and applications concerning structural fire design of concrete structures, presented at the workshop.
