Abstract

This project has led to a new formulae for the design of steel columns in case of fire. A new N/M interaction formula and new buckling curves have been developed. The formulae have been deduced and calibrated from a large amount of numerical simulations (more than 300,000) and from a database comprising 141 test results. For the study of axially loaded columns, 21 tests have been performed at the laboratory of LABEIN, Bilbao. 8 tests have been carried out at the CTICM laboratory in Maiziéres-les-Metz to analyse columns subjected to a normal force and a constant bending moment distribution.
