Abstract This report is one of a series concerning fire resistance of offshore structures. Design methods and tools which may be used to assess the structural response of steel structures under fire conditions are identified and their development and potential application to offshore structures are reviewed. The thermal response of structures is outlined in terms of types of fire, thermal loading and calculation of steel temperature. The application of the code-check and progressive collapse methods to the analysis of structures at elevated temperatures is described. Computer analysis packages are also reviewed. Glossary of terms and nomenclature.
