Those volumes of lawsuits include nine invited keynote papers and 126 contributed papers to be provided on the moment overseas convention on Advances in metal constructions hung on 15-17 December 1999 in Hong Kong. The convention is a sequel to the foreign convention on Advances in metal buildings held in Hong Kong in December 1996. The convention will supply a discussion board for dialogue and dissemination through researchers and architects of modern advances within the research, behaviour, layout and building of metal buildings. The papers to be awarded on the convention disguise a large spectrum of subject matters and have been contributed from over 15 nations world wide. They file the present state-of-the artwork and element to destiny instructions of structural metal learn.

Example text

Rotter tests are supported by a good understanding of the phenomena and by calculation of the effects of fire in reducing the member's strength, which extend the scope and confidence of the assessment far beyond the conditions actually tested. However, the structural environment of a member in such a fire test is not well related to the situation in the complete structure in a real compartment fire. It has long been recognised that the thermal scenario is unrealistic, but the greater shortcomings of the structural idealisation have not been properly identified.

The yield function for the spatial member has been developed by many authors, Chen and Austra (1976), Duan and Chen (1990), Kitipomchai et al. (1991 ). - Y. Shen [KpD] = [Ke]-[K,][G][E][L][E]r[G]r[K,] (8) where [Ke] is the elastic stiffness matrix of the spatial member element, [G],[E] and [L] can be obtained from the reference, Li et al. (1999) The same experiments mentioned in the above section can be used for verifying the simplified hysteresis model for spatial members with damage cumulation effects.

The interaction between these two regions is the subject of this paper. The full scale fire tests on the composite building at Cardington (Kirby, 1997; Moore, 1997) showed that very high temperatures could be sustained in the steel joists. Since the temperatures were so high that the steel strength was effectively destroyed, and yet runaway failures did not occur, researchers are presented with a significant task to explain why; this paper sets out some fundamental parts of that explanation. Current assessment methods for the fire resistance of a building structure (ENV 1994-1-2, 1995) are based on the fire testing of single elements, evaluated in terms of the time to failure.
