CEN - EN 1994-1-2

Eurocode 4 - Design of composite steel and concrete structures - Part 1-2: General rules - Structural fire design

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 August 2005
Status: active
Page Count: 114
ICS Code (Metal structures): 91.080.10
ICS Code (Concrete structures): 91.080.40
ICS Code (Fire-resistance of building materials and elements): 13.220.50
ICS Code (Technical aspects): 91.010.30
scope:

(1) This Part 1-2 of EN 1994 deals with the design of composite steel and concrete structures for the accidental situation of fire exposure and is intended to be used in conjunction with EN 1994-1-1 and EN 1991-1-2. This Part 1-2 only identifies differences from, or supplements to, normal temperature design.

(2) This Part 1-2 of EN 1994 deals only with passive methods of fire protection. Active methods are not covered.

(3) This Part 1-2 of EN 1994 applies to composite steel and concrete structures that are required to fulfil certain functions when exposed to fire, in terms of:

- avoiding premature collapse of the structure (load bearing function);

- limiting fire spread (flame, hot gases, excessive heat) beyond designated areas (separating function).

(4) This Part 1-2 of EN 1994 gives principles and application rules (see EN 1991-1-2) for designing structures for specified requirements in respect of the aforementioned functions and the levels of performance.

(5) This Part 1-2 of EN 1994 applies to structures, or parts of structures, that are within the scope of EN 1994-1-1 and are designed accordingly. However, no rules are given for composite elements which include prestressed concrete parts.

(6) For all composite cross-sections longitudinal shear connection between steel and concrete should be in accordance with EN 1994-1-1 or be verified by tests (see also 4.3.4.1.5 and Annex I).
