    Abstract

    Highlights
    • The fire fragility of a generic modern, mid-rise, RC office building is assessed.
    • Fragility curves for its slabs and columns are constructed by expert elicitation.
    • The expert elicitation also used to construct a suitable fire damage scale.
    • The significance of spalling in the two RC elements is identified.
