Steel Fire

The program for fire resistance verification of steel cross-sections and members according to EN 1993-1-2 (Eurocode 3). The program can work as a standalone application or verification module in programs FIN 2D and FIN 3D.

Main features

  • National annexes for the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Bulgaria
  • Option for input of arbitrary values of partial safety factors
  • Verification of cross-sections, horizontal beams and general members
  • Calculation of internal forces for horizontal beam with more supports
  • Database of cross-sections including hot rolled and welded profiles and composed cross-sections
  • Import of cross-section geometry from the program Section
  • Database of steel grades including stainless steel and user-defined material
  • Database of fire protective materials (coatings, boards etc.)
  • More types of fire details
  • Import of loads from clipboard or file (*.csv, *.txt, *.xls etc)
  • Input of holes and openings for calculation of net cross-sectional area
  • Effects of buckling and lateral torsional buckling
  • Detailed text and brief graphical reports

The program works as a standalone application or as a designing module in programs FIN 3D and FIN 2D. In this mode, the structure is created in FIN programs, that calculate deformations and internal forces. These results are transferred into the program Steel Fire. This program performs the verification according to the given standard. Results and updated cross-sections are transferred back into FIN programs. Such mutual communication leads to efficient optimization of structure design.

The program has been developed in collaboration with a team of specialists from the Faculty of Civil Engineering of CTU in Prague. Technical guarantor of the project is Prof. Ing. Frantisek Wald, Csc.

Additional tools

  • Section – Calculation of cross-sectional characteristics of arbitrary shapes

Associated Applications

The program Steel Fire works separately, however the work can be simplified when using it together with the following programs for structural analysis:

  • FIN 3D – Analysis of 3D trusses and frame structures
  • FIN 2D – Analysis of 2D trusses and frame structures

This program can be also used for design of steel structures:

  • Steel – Design of steel members according to EC3
