Seminar: Recent Advances of Research on Performance Based Fire Engineering of Structures
Professor Yong Wang, of University of Manchaster UK, will be delivering a talk on Wednesday, November 23, 2016. The talk, entitled "Recent Advances of Research on Performance Based Fire Engineering of Structures", will take place at Vedat Yerlici Conference Center, room #3, 15:30-17:00 hrs.
After a brief introduction to the existing (prescriptive) method of meeting the requirements of fire resistant construction and its shortcomings, this presentation explains the need and rationale for an alternative approach – the performance based fire engineering approach. This is then followed by introductions to a number of research themes of performance based structural fire engineering and some recent research findings, based on research carried out at the University of Manchester, covering - Alternative load carrying mechanism, Structural interactions, Connection behavior, Robustness of structures in fire and Multihazards which is the topic of collaboration between the presenter and Dr.Selamet and the main focus of this visit.
