Description: This lecture shows how?to calculate the required fire resistance of un-insulated and insulated load bearing structural members such as columns and beams on the basis of a simple calculation method and according to ENV 1999-1-2; it points out more refined methods of analysis with the aid of computer programs; it presents some approved and existing fire resistance rated applications, e.g. in the off-shore industry. Background in structural engineering and some familiarity with TALAT lectures 2501-2503 is assumed.
