FLAMDOCS - A FIRE LOAD APPLICATION METHOD

It has become increasingly important to demonstrate the influence of fire loads onto reinforced concrete structures. The model introduced in this paper not only allows practitioners to study this influence using simple calculation models, but also provides the necessary tools to dimension concrete structures against fire load. Based on the principles of mechanics, the non-linear temperature load and the non-linear material behavior is translated into linear assumptions which are valid for a certain time step within the temperature loading.
