Comparison of Bre Simple Design Method for Composite Floor Slabs in Fire with Non-linear Fe Modelling


On the basis of test evidence a new design method has been recently developed by one of the authors, for calculating the performance of composite flooring systems subject to fire. The method models simply the influence of tensile membrane action in the composite floor slabs. The objective of this paper is to show some detailed comparisons between the simple… (More)
