Learning outcomes of the course unit

Student will obtain the knowledge of the general principles and bases of the design of steel, composite steel-concrete and timber structures to the fire effects. Student will be able to determine the fire loads and material properties (steel, concrete, timber) in a high temperature in fire. Further, student will be able to design steel, composite steel-concrete and timber structural members to the fire effects, i.e. to determine their fire resistance and to evaluate fire reliability of their structural members. Student will be able to apply the skills and knowledge to the design of structural members made of materials mentioned, subjected to the tension, compression and bending. Student also will be able to perform the design and assessment of selected types of timber structures connections to the fire effects.
