This paper is aimed at describing the principles on which are based the current concepts of fire
engineering design of steel structures. The first part deals with the design methods for fire
safety through the definition of heat exposure and structural models. The second part reviews
the state of art in structural fire calculation methods, according to different levelsof assumption.
