Program Steel Fire
The software "Steel Fire" verifies fire resistance of reinforced concrete cross-sections according to EN 1992-1-2.
The user interface consists of a main menu with toolbars in the upper part of the window, tree menu on the left and input/display part on the right side of the window. The main menu contains all tools and functions, which can be used during the work. The tree menu is used for the administration of individual project tasks as well as for switching between parts of an input. The work with the tree menu is described in the chapter "Tree menu". The tree menu can be alternated by the part "Input" of the main menu. Tools for documents printing are organized in the window "Print and export document", which can be opened using the printing icon in the toolbar "Files" or using the appropriate link in the part "File" of the main menu.

The part "Fire resistance parameters" contains an option for input of default value of fire resistance for all tasks (sections and members) of the project. The input can be done in the window "Fire resistance", that can be launched by using the button "Edit". The check box "Set required fire resistance for all tasks" sets the specified fire resistance also to all existing tasks in the project.
