Fire Design and Serviceability Issues - Metal Deck Slabs subject to Concentrated Loading

The material in this paper draws on previous SCNZ and HERA reports (Fussell et al 2006, Barber and Clifton 1994 and Clifton 2006) which cover the ultimate limit state design of metal slabs subject to concentrated loading and fire engineering design.

The material in this paper draws on previous SCNZ and HERA reports (Fussell et al 2006, Barber and Clifton 1994 and Clifton 2006) which cover the ultimate limit state design of metal slabs subject to concentrated loading and fire engineering design. The intention is to cover issues not addressed by any of these previous documents, namely fire design and deflection limits for metal deck slabs subject to concentrated loading. The emphasis is on directing structural engineers to appropriate sources of design guidance and where required, how to modify this design guidance to address fire design and serviceability issues. To make this document easy to read alongside these earlier publications, the original notation where possible is used.
