Abstract

This report gives an exposition of the application of advanced, probabilistic calculation methods to assess of the fire endurance of structures. The particular application case that we address is glulam wooden structures in a hall-like large single-space building. The first method used is a reliability analysis based on the approximation of the fire exposure by the standard time-temperature curve and the second method is a novel simulation-based probabilistic approach integrating passive and active fire safety measures to an estimate of the risks involved.
