Why Dlubal Software?
The fire resistance design can be performed according to EN 1993-1-2 in RF-/STEEL EC3. The design is carried out according to the simplified calculation method for the ultimate limit state. Claddings with different physical properties can be selected as fire protection measures. You can select the standard temperature-time curve, the external fire curve, and the hydrocarbon curve to determine the gas temperature.
When designing a steel cross-section according to Eurocode 3, it is important to assign the cross-section to one of the four cross-section classes. Classes 1 and 2 allow for a plastic design, classes 3 and 4 are only for elastic design. In addition to the resistance of the cross-section, the structural component's sufficient stability has to be analyzed.
Member design programs (such as RF‑/STEEL EC3, RF‑/STEEL AISC, RF‑/STEEL AS etc.) provide not only numerical evaluation of designs in tabular form but also all extreme values in form of diagrams using member lengths in the graphic environment. In this case, the Results navigator specifies which result components are considered in the diagrams (for example, only ultimate limit state design, only serviceability limit state design, envelope of all designs, and so on).
