Design models are required to assess the behaviour in fire of aluminium structures. These models need to be validated by comparison with test. Up to now tests results are only available for (small scale) individual components. This paper provides the results of tests carried out on frames. A finite element model in combination with a sophisticated constitutive model are used to simulate the test. The results of the simulations agree with that of the tests at room and elevated temperatures.
