The development of a fire in a large-space fire section differs significantly from the development in a small fire section. In large-space objects, to design structures under the fire load often proceeds through a performance-based approach. Advanced methods can be used in all parts of the design in predicting of the scatter of temperature field, in calculating of the heat transfer to the structure and in assessing of the mechanical behaviour of the structure or its part under the fire load. The prediction of the gas temperature in the fire compartment is crucial for the structure design. The paper is focused on selection of different fire scenarios in the large-space building. The aim is to provide background for structural design in a fire using a performance-based design. The problem is solved by using FDS (Fire Dynamics Simulator) software based on the CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) method.
