AbstractAnalytical expressions are given that describe characteristic temperature curves as a function of the significant parameters for various fire conditions commonly met with in practice. Expressions are also given for the standard fire curve used in North America and for the fire curve adopted by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The curves are intended as basic fire exposure curves for fire resistive design.
