(1) This Part 1-2 of EN 1996 deals with the design of masonry structures for the accidental situation of fire exposure, and is intended to be used in conjunction with EN 1996-1-1, EN 1996-2, 1996-3 and EN 1991-1-2. This part 1-2 only identifies differences from, or supplements to, normal temperature design.
(2) This Part 1-2 deals only with passive methods of fire protection. Active methods are not covered.
(3) This Part 1-2 applies to masonry structures which, for reasons of general fire safety, are required to fulfil certain functions when exposed to fire, in terms of:
- avoiding premature collapse of the structure (load bearing function)
- limiting fire spread (flames, hot gases, excessive heat) beyond designated areas (separating function)
(4) This Part 1-2 gives principles and application rules for designing structures for specified requirements in respect of the aforementioned functions and levels of performance.
(5) This Part 1-2 applies to structures, or parts of structures, that are within the scope of EN 1996-1-1, EN 1996-2 and EN 1996-3 and are designed accordingly.
(6) This Part 1-2 does not cover masonry built with Natural Stone units to EN771-6
(7) This Part 1-2 deals with the following:
- non-loadbearing internal walls.
- non-loadbearing external walls.
- loadbearing internal walls with separating or non-separating functions.
- loadbearing external walls with separating or non-separating functions.
