Paper Title
Fire Load Calculation on Hospital Buildings in India
  Manish Nigam,  Awadhesh Kumar Singh,  Abhishek Dixit

The disaster of September 11th 2001, in New York has aroused the interest of all those concerned with building design and construction specially Hospital Buildings because it is most vulnerable on the issue of structural behavior in fire. In particular, since composite steel–concrete construction is often associated with steel which has high thermal conductivity (thus giving fast increase of temperature under fire exposure) and reduces strength and stiffness at elevated temperatures, the performance and safety of composite steel–concrete structures in fire will receive intensive attention. However, it should be pointed out that prior to the September 11th event, research studies on steel and composite structural performance in fire had been intensive, and advances in this field rapid particularly in Europe.The provision of structural safety in buildings is based on the specification of loads that the building is required to resist. The use of loads as a means to regulate structural safety (what structural engineers call the limit state design method) has two components. First is the definition of a load including how it acts on the building and the related engineering analysis and design methods .At present the fire load load factor in I.S. code is taken from prescriptive based codes from U.S. and U.K. countries so in this research I am trying to find out the value of performance based value of fire load and propose this value as a performance based fire load value for Northern region of India. I will try to identify the structural response of hospital building in fire as a R.C.C. and composite structure and compare their stability.

Keywords- Keywords: Fire load, Fire Safety, Hospital building.
