Fire Design of Timber Members
30th June 2020 - 13:00-15:00 BST
The fire design of timber members consists of the determination of char layer and taking the effect of strength loss in the heated zone into account. This webinar will describe the general procedure for fire design of timber members, and more specifically the design of glulam beams and columns in standard fire according to EN 1995-1-2. A design example will be given.
Alar Just is a professor of structural engineering at Tallinn University of Technology and a researcher at RISE Research Institutes of Sweden. He completed his dissertation on fire resistance of timber frame assemblies in 2010. From 2010 he has worked as a researcher at RISE Research Institutes of Sweden where his research is related to fire resistance of timber structures. He has conducted more than 200 fire tests and is currently supervising 3 PhD students in the field of fire resistance of timber structures. Other than RISE ad Tallinn University, he has regular courses at Linneaus University and London City University. Dr Just is also a reviewer for several scientific journals, in the scientific board of the conferences Structures in Fire, Wood Building Forum, and Wood and Fire. Dr Just was a core group member of COST Action FP1404 “Fire safe use of bio-based building products” and is a head of Estonian delegation in CEN TC 250 SC 5. He is member of TC250 - SC5.T4 project team, drafting the next generation of EN 1995-1-2.
