Can RF-TIMBER AWC optimize cross-sections for fire design?

Answer

The RF-TIMBER AWC module does not optimize cross-sections for the Serviceability Limit State or the Fire Resistance design. Optimization is only calculated for the Ultimate Limit State design.

Users must manually adjust the cross-section in RFEM or within the add-on module and can export the cross-section back into RFEM. In either scenario, the model must be rerun in order to calculate the correct internal forces with the adjusted member size.
