(1)P This Part 1-2 of EN 1992 deals with the design of concrete structures for the accidental situation of fire exposure and is intended to be used in conjunction with EN 1992-1-1 and EN 1991-1-2. This part 1-2 only identifies differences from, or supplements to, normal temperature design.
(2)P This Part 1-2 of EN 1992 deals only with passive methods of fire protection. Active methods are not covered.
(3)P This Part 1-2 of EN 1992 applies to concrete structures that are required to fulfil certain functions when exposed to fire, in terms of:
- avoiding premature collapse of the structure (load bearing function)
- limiting fire spread (flame, hot gases, excessive heat) beyond designated areas (separating function)
(4)P This Part 1-2 of EN 1992 gives principles and application rules (see EN 1991-1-2) for designing structures for specified requirements in respect of the aforementioned functions and the levels of performance.
(5)P This Part 1-2 of EN 1992 applies to structures, or parts of structures, that are within the scope of EN 1992-1-1 and are designed accordingly. However, it does not cover:
- structures with prestressing by external tendons
- shell structures
(6)P The methods given in this Part 1-2 of EN 1992 are applicable to normal weight concrete up to strength class C90/105 and for lightweight concrete up to strength class LC55/60. Additional and alternative rules for strength classes above C50/60 are given in section 6.
