Conference Paper
Full-text available
Safety in service life of the load-bearing structure is one of the design goals that structure needs to satisfy. This is achieved by an adequate analysis of actions and their possible combinations and scenarios. Until the Eurocodes, these analyzes have not considered fire performance of the structure or individual structural element. Later, by adop...
