Fire resistance – automatic temperature calculation
Enhanced fire resistance calculations
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.
