SAFIR is a computer program that models the behavior of building and civil engineering structures subjected to fire. SAFIR runs thermal and mechanical analyses based on nonlinear finite element method.
The structure can be made of a 3D skeleton of linear elements such as beams and columns, in conjunction with planar elements such as slabs and walls. Volumetric elements can be used for analysis of details in the structure such as connections. Different materials such as steel, concrete, timber, aluminum, gypsum or thermally insulating products can be used separately or in combination in the model.
