KB 001840 | Fire Resistance Design of Steel Components with Hot-Dip Galvanizing in RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9
First Steps with RFEM
With the Steel Design add-on, you can design structural steel components in the event of fire using the simple design methods according to Eurocode 3. The component temperature at the time of the design check can be determined automatically according to the temperature-time curves specified in the standard. In addition to considering a cladding for fire protection, it is also possible for you to take account of the beneficial properties of hot-dip galvanization.
