S’il est possible d’observer de nombreuses œuvres qui, depuis le XIXe siècle et particulièrement au tournant du XXe siècle, se présentent comme des fictions de fins du monde déclinant les situations-catastrophes, il est plus difficile d’appréhender ces textes en mots et en images comme un ensemble cohérent et de les associer à un genre littéraire particulier. Entre désignations d’époque et catégorisations rétrospectives, un corpus se dessine toutefois, qui développe ses propres caractéristiques internes et connaît une histoire éditoriale complexe. La communication propose de réfléchir aux modalités d’appartenance de ces « récits dystopiques » à l’histoire littéraire et aux critères possibles de leur rassemblement pour une étude poétique transversale.

The new steel bridge “Hans-Wilsdorf” in Geneva is an exceptional steel structure that will drive general traffic through a main transportation axis. As the investment cost of the project is important, a structural fire analysis has been performed to study the sensitivity of the structure to a high temperature exposure, such as a truck in fire on the deck. This analysis will allow deciding whether a severe fire could be an unacceptable economical risk for the bridge. [less ▲]

This book explains and illustrates the rules that are given in the Eurocodes for designing steel structures subjected to fire. After the first introductory chapter, Chapter 2 explains how to calculate the mechanical actions (loads) in the fire situation based on the information given in EN 1990 and EN 1991. Chapter 3 presents the models to be used to represent the thermal actions created by the fire. Chapter 4 describes the procedures to be used to calculate the temperature of the steelwork from the temperature of the compartment and Chapter 5 shows how the information given in EN 1993-1-2 is used to determine the load bearing capacity of the steel structure. The methods use to evaluate the fire resistance of bolted and welded connections are described in Chapter 7. Chapter 8 describes a computer program called ‘Elefire-EN’ which is based on the simple calculation model given in the Eurocode and allows designers to quickly and accurately calculate the performance of steel components in the fire situation. Chapter 9 looks at the issues that a designer may be faced with when assessing the fire resistance of a complete building. This is done via a case study and addresses most of the concepts presented in the earlier Chapters. Finally the annexes give basic information on the thermal and mechanical properties for both carbon steel and stainless steel. The concepts and fire engineering procedures given in the Eurocodes may seem complex to those more familiar with the prescriptive approach. This publication sets out the design process in a logical manner giving practical and helpful advice and easy to follow worked examples that will allow designers to exploit the benefits of this new approach to fire design.

This paper presents a fire design study case for a high-rise storage rach supporting building. Standardised ISO and natural fire models were considered for the fire action. The structural analysis was carried out by means of the advanced numerical program SAFIR, an FEM software specialised for the thermal and mechanical analysis of structures submitted to the fire.

Major earthquakes in urban areas have often been followed by significant conflagrations that have been difficult to control and have resulted in extensive damage to property. Earthquakes, then, increase the risk of loss of life if a fire occurs within a building. It is obvious therefore that a fire after an earthquake is a design scenario that should be properly addressed in any performance-based design, in locations where significant earthquakes can occur. In this paper both experimental and numerical results of undamaged and pre-damaged welded steel-concrete composite beam-to-column joints with concrete filled tubes are described as part of a European project aimed at developing fundamental data, design guidelines and prequalification of ductile and fire resistant composite beam-to-column joints. In detail, both the experimental program and the fire experimental results are presented and discussed in this paper together with thermal numerical simulations on frames and joints. Both the experimental activity and the numerical work demonstrated the adequacy of the seismic and joint fire design. [less ▲]

Particularly well-known among the many impacts of the invasive annual grass downy brome (Bromus tectorum, Poaceae) is its ability to alter fire cycles and increase in abundance after fire. However, little is known about how fire influences B. tectorum dispersal. We quantified fire effects on B. tectorum dispersal using three recently burned areas in the western region of the Colorado Rocky Mountains by marking diaspores (seeds) with fluorescent powder, and then recovering them at night using ultraviolet lights. Diaspores were of two types: with and without sterile florets attached. We also characterized vegetation cover and near-surface wind speed in burned and unburned areas. Diaspores travelled much farther in burned areas than in nearby unburned areas (mean ± standard error at the end of the experiment: 209 ± 16 cm and 38 ± 1 cm, respectively; maximal distance at the end of the experiment: 2,274 cm and 150 cm, respectively), indicating an increase in dispersal distance after fire. Diaspores with sterile florets attached dispersed longer distances than those without sterile florets (mean ± standard error at the end of the experiment: 141 ± 14 cm and 88 ± 7 cm, respectively). Vegetation cover was lower and wind speeds were higher in the burned areas. Our results indicate that at least one of the mechanisms by which the spread of B. tectorum is promoted by fire is through increased seed dispersal distance. Preventing movement of seeds from nearby infestations into burned areas may help avoid the rapid population expansion often observed. [less ▲]
