Preface to Advanced Analysis and Design for Fire Safety of Steel Structures


Advanced Analysis and Design for Fire Safety of Steel Structures present a systematic description of recent research achievements on behaviors of structural steel components in a fire, such as the catenary actions of restrained steel beams, the design methods of restrained steel columns and the membrane actions of concrete floor slabs with steel decks in a fire.

Using a systematic description of structural fire safety engineering principles, the authors illustrate the important difference between behaviors of isolated structural elements and restrained components in a global structure under fire conditions.

The book is also essential for structural engineers who wish to improve their understanding of steel buildings exposed to fires.

It is also an ideal textbook for introductory courses in fire safety for a master's degree program in structural engineering and vital reading material for final year undergraduate students in civil engineering and fire safety engineering.

Furthermore, it successfully bridges the information gap between fire safety engineers, structural engineers, and building inspectors, and will be of significant interest to architects, code officials, building designers, and firefighters.

We sincerely hope and anticipate that this book will be useful to anyone interested or involved in this fascinating and technologically important research area.

Since 1991 we have been devoted to the study of structural behaviors and analysis of steel structures in a fire. It is unimaginable that the work could have been carried out, year-by-year, without financial support.

Therefore we gratefully acknowledge the National Natural Science Foundation of China (Grant Nos. 59478038, 59778032, 51008181), the National Natural Science Foundation of China for Distinguished Young Scholar (Grant No. 50225825), the Foundation for Innovative Research Groups of the National Natural Science Foundation of China (Grant Nos. 50321803, 50621062),

The State Key Program of National Natural Science of China (Grant No. 50738005), the Joint Research Fund for Overseas Natural Science of China (Grant No. 50728805) and the Open Research Fund of the State Key Laboratory of Disaster Reduction in Civil Engineering (Grant No. SLDRCE09-TS-02) for the financial support.

It is indeed a great pleasure to extend our “thank you” to all our colleagues and former research students for their dedication to our research projects. Especially, the contributions to Chapter 2 from Dr. Yong Du to Chapter 3 from Mr. Kai Chen and Dr. Guobiao Lou, to Chapter 7 from Dr. Shixiong Guo and Dr. Yinzhi Wang, to Chapter 8 from Dr. Weiyong Wang, to Chapter 9 from Dr. Shouchao Jiang and Ms. Nasi Zhang, to Chapter 10 from Dr. Shouchao Jiang and to Chapter 11 from Dr. Huangtin Zhou, Dr. Yong Du and Ms. Jueqian Huang.

Their efforts are deeply appreciated and acknowledged. Finally, we would like to thank the editorial staff of Springer Verlag and Zhejiang University Press for their great assistance.
