First Steps with RFEM
Is it possible to perform fire resistance design of cross-laminated timber panels in RF‑LAMINATE?
AnswerFire resistance design is not implemented in the RF‑LAMINATE add-on module by default.
- Span 5 m
- Plate width 2 m
- LC1 (permanent) 1 kN/m² plus dead load
- LC2 (medium) 2.5 kN/m²
- 3 layers
- S1 35 mm C24
- S2 20 mm C24
- S3 35 mm C24
- Charring rate ß0 = 0.65 mm/min
- Pyrolysis zone k0d0 = 7 mm
- Charring time t = 30 min
- Effective thickness def=t ß0+k0d0=30 min × 0.65 mm/min+7 mm = 26.5 mm
