Fire design for aluminium alloy beams is performed using the same system of cross-sectional slenderness classes as is employed at room temperature. Identical width-over-thickness ratio limits are used to define the boundaries between the classes. These limits are known (and demonstrated) to be conservative, but may in fact be over-conservative. Especially for tempered alloys, the geometric limits may be relaxed considerably, allowing cross-sections to be upgraded in class for fire design calculations.
