Structural fire engineering of unusual steel structures

Which of the following statements is consistent with the approach taken by Buro Happold FEDRA in their assessment of the fire protection requirements for external steelwork at the D. Y. Patil School of Management?

Use the external steelwork approach given in the Eurocodes
Carry out a small range of assessments for what were judged to be representative combinations of structural arrangement, compartments and ventilation conditions
Carry out a large range of assessments to take into account different structural elements, different compartments and different ventilation conditions
Take into account the possible draught and wind conditions

Which one of the following best describes the fire scenarios that were assessed as being likely to cause the greatest threat to the stability of the atrium structure at the ME Hotel?

Sprinklered global fire
Unsprinklered global fire
Sprinklered localised fires
Unsprinklered localised fires

Which of the following describes the fire protection strategy adopted in the atrium structure in the ME Hotel?

120 minutes fire resistance on all steelwork between ground floor and 2nd floor. 60 minutes fire resistance to all steelwork above that.
120 minutes fire resistance to all steelwork between ground floor and 2nd floor. 60 minutes fire resistance to the columns only above that.
120 minutes fire resistance to all steelwork between ground floor level and 1st floor. 60 minutes fire resistance to all steelwork between 1st floor and 2nd floor. 60 minutes fire resistance to the corner columns running to top floor with the remainder of the atrium steelwork unprotected.
None of the above

Which of the following was identified as the overarching assessment criteria for the fire engineering at the ME Hotel?

Minimising structural fire protection
Achieving global stability of the building in fire
Fire fighter safety
Preventing local failure

At the D. Y. Patil School of Management, critical elements were defined as being those which ''were critical for more than one floor and overall building stability''. What additional assessments were identified as having been carried out on these critical elements?

The analysis included extreme fires
The analysis included assessment of the consequences of thermal elongation
The analysis included the impact of a localised fire at 1000°C for 20 minutes
All of the above
