Title:
Parametric study of modelling structural timber in fire with different software packages 
Pages contribution:

Abstract:
In a bid to accurately model structural behaviour of timber buildings in fire, a number of obstacles have been identified which must be fully understood before advanced computer modelling can accurately be used to represent physical behaviour. This paper discusses the obstacles, with suggestions on how to mitigate them, incorporating the challenges of using general purpose finite element software. The paper examines modelling with ANSYS, SAFIR and ABAQUS and the individual and collective challen...    »
