Fire Safety Design of Composite Slim Floor Structures

A structural fire safety design method for composite steel-concrete slim floor structures
was developed, including the characterization of fully-developed compartment fire curves and
the equivalent fire exposure, temperature analysis of the composite structures, and the
structural response analysis of composite slim floor structures subjected to fire. Special
interest was given to the structural responses of the slim floor beam both as an isolated
member and a part of the frame structure. The mechanical interaction behind the global
deformation response of the frame was emphasized.

Although the analyzed objects concentrated on composite slim floor structures, the
according fire safety design method and the explored structural response mechanism in fire
are equally applicable to other types of building structures
