6. Cross-sectional stability of structural steel at elevated temperatures
Published: 4/19/2012
Authors: Therese P McAllister, Mina Samir Seif
Abstract: There is a lack of understanding of how structural systems perform under realistic, uncontrolled fires. Current specifications for the design of steel structures in the US do not include fire effects as part of structural design. Instead, fire pr ...
