PD 7974-3:2011 Application of fire safety engineering principles to the design of buildings. Structural response and fire spread beyond the enclosure of origin

This Published Document (PD 7974-3:2011) provides a framework for developing a rational methodology for design using a fire safety engineering approach through the application of scientific and engineering principles to the protection of people, property and the environment from fire. PD 7974-3:2011 considers the following issues:

  • The conditions within a fire enclosure and their potential to cause fire spread
  • The thermal and mechanical response of the enclosure boundaries and its structure to the fire conditions
  • The impact of the anticipated thermal and mechanical responses on adjacent enclosures and spaces
  • The structural responses of loadbearing elements and their effect on structural stability, load transfer and acceptable damage according to the design and purpose of the building
  • Fire following structural impact to the building.

PD 7974-3:2011 is one of a series of documents published under the Fire Standards Policy Committee, and is a supporting document to BS 7974, Code of Practice on the Application of Fire Safety Engineering Principles to the Design of Buildings.

Other documents in the series are:
