Abstract:
Fire safety of concrete buildings draws on the findings from real fire investigations of concrete buildings, as well as research commissioned in Australia by CCAA and recent overseas studies, to provide a better understanding of the performance of concrete structures in fire. It is intended for engineers and building practitioners who are involved with the design of concrete buildings for fire safety and who wish to gain a greater understanding of fire engineering and the behaviour of concrete in fire.
