Boris Androić, Darko Dujmović, Ivica Džeba

Abstract

Current practices and approaches to the protection of structures against fire hazard in Croatia are presented. Fire protection measures that are usually specified in detailed design documents are described. This description reveals that the current situation regarding application of foreign and national regulations and guidelines is quite disorderly. Principal Eurocode directives related to the fire protection issue are presented. An example is used to illustrate the way in which optimum analytical solutions can be found. The authors recommend urgent change of current practices regarding protection of structures against fire hazard.
