    Summary

    Despite its merits, the application of structural fire engineering remains relatively limited. Presently, the vast majority of structures are designed to resist fire exposure in accordance with standard fire resistance requirements. As an alternative approach, structural fire engineering explicitly evaluates the demand and capacity of structural systems under fire loading in a similar manner as other design loads are treated in structural engineering practice. This emerging field of structural fire engineering is fast approaching a “renaissance period” with recent and prospective releases of industry-consensus standards that help to consolidate the knowledge database. These standards pertain directly to structural fire engineering practice by providing guidance on the evaluation of fuel loads, fire exposure, thermal response of structures, and structural system response to fire effects. This presentation will discuss how these standards will serve to cultivate the future proliferation of structural fire engineering.
