Reinforced concrete column Option fire design

BEST-SFD - Fire protection according to the zone method for general reinforced concrete columns and cantilever columns

The program FUNDA from RIB is our choice for the dimensioning of foundations of all kinds. We regularly use the time-saving load transfer from the support program BEST. The quality of the results had been convincing for years. Now we see the new ergonomics of operation and expression as further highlights.

Dipl.-Ing. Martin Scheunemann, Ingenieurteam Trebes, Kiel

 

Overview

  • Fire design in compliance with DIN, EN according to national annexes for DE, AT, SK/CZ and UK
  • Consideration of biaxial bending with axial and shear forces
  • Standard x-sections: rectangular, circular, U-shaped, H-shaped and torus shaped
  • Consideration of thermal strains in fire design
  • Automatic generation of load combinations
  • User-defined reinforcement arrangement, Simple reinforcement draft
  • simple and clear evaluation of results

Benefits

The option for the consideration of high-temperature stresses facilitates an essential enhancement of functionality with regard to the regular column design and in particular provides the following advantages:

  • efficient consideration of the standard fire stress according to uniform temperature-time-curves
  • simple acquisition of moveable columns with arbitrary support
  • continuous verifications for columns with unlimited member hights / slendernesses 
  • clear output of results from thermal and mechanical analysis as well as hot design.
