Abstract: A method of calculation of fire resistance of steel structures has been developed in France by the Technical Center for Steel Construction. The main parts of this method are the determination of critical temperature and heating-up behavior of steel structures. This second part is developed in detail. It takes into account the steel protection by dry, wet, form-fitting, or sprayed protecting materials, but not by intumescent paints. Flow charts make the use of theoretical calculations easier. Thermal properties of some well-known materials are listed.
