Due to a number of specific advantages, more and more lightweight steel structures are used in constructions as both non-load-bearing and load-bearing members. This has led to the development of relevant design rules for room temperature application in different standards, such as part 1.3 of Eurocode 3. However, as far as design for the fire limit state is concerned, knowledge remains still quite poor in this field due to lack of sufficient research.
