Fire design – automatic temperature calculation (23.1)

This article is also available in:
Fire design is based on temperature calculation using the incremental method of EN 1993-1-2 - 4.2.5. Engineers do not need to make temperature calculations on their own anymore or rely on additional manual solutions, such as spreadsheets.

Enhanced fire resistance calculations

We have enhanced the functionality released in version 22.1.

Using this method, the temperature in each plate is calculated separately. Fire is assumed to impact the whole connection model and all its surfaces at once. The temperatures of bolts and welds are safely assumed to be the same as the hottest connected plate.

Fire curve, resistance class, material degradation curves, and fire protection properties are set in the app Connection in Settings. Fire protection can be added uniformly to the whole joint.
