Structural components of aluminium alloys are relatively sensitive to local buckling, due to the thin walls usually applied in combination with he high strength over stiffness ratios. Well evaIuated verification models are available to check he resistance for local buckling at room temperature. For fire design, however, such verification models are not available in case of aluminium structures. Based on a finite element study, this paper gives a verification model for local buckling of aluminium alloy structural components when exposed to fire.
