Abstract This report is one of a series concerning fire resistance of offshore structures and relates to fire design criteria for secondary steelwork. Fire design requirements are discussed along with methods and calculations. The study shows that, almost without exception, secondary steelwork has not previously been designed to withstand fire loads. Fire protection of secondary steelwork in key areas may be increased by making use of materials with enhanced fire-resistant, durability and corrosion-proof properties.
