[en] In this paper, the modifications that have been recently introduced in the parametric fire model of Eurocode 1 are presented. The reasons behind these modifications are given. Some Problems that have been discovered in the present formulation are highlighted, namely the fact that the model is not continuous and the fact that the heat release of wood that has been used for the calibration of the model is not consistent anymore with the value that is now recommended in the Eurocode. A proposal is made that makes the model continuous. A new calibration of this modified model has been made on the base of the now recommended value of the heat release of wood with comparison to the results of some 50 full scale experimental fire tests.
