    Yes, this feature is included in the General Design module.

    Unfortunately there’s no wrokaround for that, the problem is inside the OS exe.

    Dear Mr. Prabakan,
    yes, afawk it can be used with rigid floors, but unfortunately there are memory leaks during running, not depedent from us, that can happen with any model and any analyses sequence.

    Hello,
    you can simply work with CSV files, as reported here “Expand section library” in the users manual and here: https://www.nextfem.it/it/nextfem-designer-features/

    Yes, send it to info@nextfem.it
    Sorry we’re updating our servers in these days.

    Hello, please try again uploding the pic, thanks.

    Composite section for now cannot be transformed into a thermal model directly. You need to transform a section at a time (one time for steel, and one for concrete) and then merge nodes.
    I’ve added this feature in our to-do list.

    Hello,
    I suspect this error does not rely on us, anyway please send your model to see to check.
    By what I see in the picture, simply your model does not converge using OpenSees solver.

    regards

    Nodal temperature time-history now available in patch no. 1 for ver.1.4, see https://www.nextfem.it/it/patches/

    Create new nodes and new elements, or create only border nodes and mesh automatically with the planar mesher.

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

    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.

    See this sample.

    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

    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.
