Abstract

In 1981, pioneering fire engineer Margaret Law presented a chapter at the ASCE Spring Convention in New York entitled “Designing fire safety for steel—recent work” (Law 1981). The visionary chapter presented a summary of novel work that she and colleagues at Arup Fire had completed to performance engineer the structural fire safety of innovative and architecturally exciting buildings—such as the Pompidou Center in Paris.
