Fire resistance for concrete members

This article is also available in:
The long-awaited functionality of the fire resistance according to EN 1992-1-2: 2006 – 11 has been implemented in the code-check of the RCS application. The check is available for the member types slab, wall, beam, and column.

When code-checking a member to fire resistance, a tabulated data method is used, which is a sufficient approach for the majority of the structures. The functionality can be selected during the creation of a new project in the wizard, where the member type is chosen as well.

Additionally, projects created in older versions can be checked to fire resistance, too.

Important note: Currently, only the Eurocode is supported.
