Fire Resistance Design of Steel and Composite Structures
09:30 - 12:30 GMT, 11th May 2020
The webinar will be composed of the following 3 parts:
Part 1: Fire resistance requirements, general procedure, material properties, design fires, heat transfer and steel structure temperature calculations
Part 2: Fire resistance design of steel and composite elements to Eurocode 3 and Eurocode 4 Part 1.2
Part 3: Fire protection methods for steel structures, tensile membrane action, post fire assessment
Yong Wang is Professor and Head of Structural and Fire Engineering at the University of Manchester. He has nearly 30 years of experience of research, specialist consultancy and teaching of fire safety and engineering of structures. Before joining the University of Manchester in 1997, he was with the Building Research Establishment and a core member of the BRE team that carried out the ground-breaking Cardington structural fire research programme. He is a member of the British Standards Institution committee BS/525/-/32 on fire safety of structures and BSI committee BS/525/4 on composite structures. He is a member of the CEN (Committee for European Standardisation) Project Team SC4.T4 (developing a new method for fire resistance design of concrete filled tubular columns), Project Team SC3.T6 (revision of Eurocode 3 Part 1.2, fire safety design of steel structures), and CEN Eurocode 4 Working Group 2 (responsible for development of Eurocode 4 Part 1.2). He is the author of the Tata Steel Europe guide on fire resistance design of concrete filled tubes. This guide, together with the accompanying software FireSoft, is the UK’s Non-Contradictory, Complimentary Information for fire resistance design of concrete filled tubes. He is a co-author of the Thomas Telford publication “Designers guide to EN 1991-1-2, EN 1993-1-2, EN 1994-1-2: Fire engineering (actions on steel and composite structures”. He has published a number of books and numerous research papers on the subject and has been teaching Fire Engineering of Structures at the University of Manchester for nearly 20 years.
