Primary NOx reduction with low NOx burners can be considered the best available technology for steel. The technical goal of this project has been to disseminate effectively knowledge on structural fire safety engineering - gained in numerous ECSC-funded projects over the last 15 years - in as many countries and languages as possible. Common material in the form of syllabi and PowerPoint presentations have been prepared which explain simply modern fire calculation tools such as NFSC, recently implemented in the Eurocodes. Besides the explanation of the tools, accepted or given by EN 1991-1-2, EN 1993-1-2 and EN 1994-1-2, practical design examples, real building applications and collection of available software for fire design are provided. All these data are available in English, German, French, Dutch, Spanish and Finnish. An HTML tool has been created to guide the user through these data (six times 312 PP sheets and six times 211 text pages). Public seminars and workshops have been arranged in participating countries and special workshops for authorities, architects and engineers were organised. The key target groups were designers, architects, clients, authorities responsible for fire safety validation, as well as teachers and students from universities, technical high schools and technical schools. A total of around 720 people have attended the various seminars. The information produced and distributed in this project should be useful in practical daily design work for educational purposes, as well as in performance-based fire design. Further dissemination is therefore foreseen through the Internet.
