Title: Fire design of reinforced concrete columns. An alternative to the tabular method presented by the Brazilian standard NBR 15200:2004
Author(s): V. P. Silva
Appears on pages(s): 365-392
Keywords: fire, columns, concrete, standartization.
Abstract:The Brazilian standard ABNT NBR 15200:2004 - Fire design of concrete structures gives a tabular method to the fire design of concrete columns, which associates the load level and the minimal dimensions of the cross-section and the place of the reinforcement centroid to the required time of fire resistance. This paper presents the theory of those tables and a study as a contribution to a future review of NBR 15200. A structural design more optimized, more correct and economic than the tabular method given by the Brazilian standard can be attained using alternative methods.
