Abstract: ▪ Performance-based fire safety design is an accepted methodology in many countries of Europe for the verification of structural resistance in fire conditions. This calculation procedure takes into account the individual characteristics of the building and the passive and active fire protection methods.
▪ A realistic understanding of the behaviour of structures in fire can be achieved and the overall safety of the building can be verified by using performance-based fire safety design. Through the more profound understanding of phenomena and a more precise analysis of structures in fire, an equal to or higher safety level than with prescriptive fire design can be obtained.
