Life safety in single-story steel frame buildings, Part II - probabilistic design
(English)In: Journal of Structural Fire Engineering, ISSN 2040-2317, E-ISSN 2040-2325Article in journal (Refereed) Submitted
Abstract [en]

Including consideration to the fire conditions in structural fire safety design enables a nuanced evaluation of the life safety objective in single-story-, single-compartment buildings. This paper investigates the probability of unacceptable consequences from structural fire damage in a typical Scandinavian single-story steel frame building and discusses it in relation to life safety. The investigated building does not meet the safety levels as stipulated by EN 1990 for structural fire damage. However, by including consideration to the fire conditions in the compartment, it is shown that the life safety objective is not compromised by the structural fire damage, i.e. the structure remains intact as long as any individuals/firefighters can survive within the fire area compartment.

This paper is a complement to the paper Life safety in single-story steel frame buildings, Part I – deterministic design by Sandström (2019) considering the same design philosophy but with a deterministic design approach.
