    Hi,

    I followed the video of fire analysis of the I-section.
    When I want to apply a “Point Load” and click the “Temperature” the load case is blank and the defined fire curve does not appear (please see attached photo).

    Could you please help me?

    Thank you so much.

    Hi,
    Thanks for providing the new version :)
    Can we apply a desired/especial fire profile to the section? If so, how?
    And in the tutorial video, only the nodes of bottom edge was exposed to fire. Is there any particular reason for this? I think in the realistic fire, we apply temperatures to all faces of the section; right?

    Good luck!

    Hello,
    strenght under fire of the section is controlled by conductivity and specific heat – you can always add another layer for fire protection with different properties. There’s a sample here (in Italian): https://www.nextfem.it/it/analisi-termica-di-sezioni-in-c-a/

    In the tutorial, we supposed the bottom edge was the only one exposed. This is a typical situation for a beam. For columns, all edges are exposed. You can apply fire on any edge.

    Hello,
    Thanks for your support.
    I am going to apply a fire profile according to Eurocode 3 relations corresponds to the following fuel load, opening and thermal properties of enclosure: qtd=160, O=0.032, b=1000.
    Sorry I could not understand how should I import it in NextFEM. Could you please guide me?

    From Edit / Functions…, pick the series you want to add from Add new series menu.
    Then click on Add in the “Series Tools” box, and again Add button in the “Add Function by points” box.

    The function must be associated to the HT analysis in Assign/Analysis settings.
    Hope this helps

    Hi,
    How can we save the history results of heat transfer analysis of the section (save at each time)?
    Is it possible to save a txt file (time-temperature)?

    Extract data/Nodal temperature for now does not allow to get temperature series over time, but it can export for the same time all nodes. This feature proposal will be inserted in the list for the next patch.

    Many thanks for your support.
    Excuse me, in the heat transfer analysis of a section how can we consider the effect of fireproofing or no-fireproofing?

    #2573

    Admin NextFEM
    Keymaster

    Simply add a “layer” (made with some elements) with other caracteristics, representing the fireproofing.

    This is also my question. Could you please provide more details about adding the layer, schematically?
