dc.description.abstractThe fire following earthquake is a low probability high consequence hazard. According to the Directive of the European Commission issued on 21 December 1988, the construction works must be designed and built in such a way that in the event of an outbreak of fire the load bearing capacity of the construction can be assured for a specific period of time, the generation and spread of fire and smoke within the building and to neighbouring constructions are limited, the occupants can leave the injured place by themselves or be rescued by other means and the safety of rescue teams is considered. Consequently, the behaviour in fire of structures which have been damaged by earthquakes represents an important investigation field since in many cases fires break out after a seismic event, giving rise to a real catastrophe.
