An Effective Method For Fire Analysis of Steel Frames
This paper presents a developed method using practical advanced analysis (PAA) for fire analysis of steel frames.
PAA based on the beam-column approach is employed to obtain the nonlinear inelastic behaviors of structure. The fire effects
on structural behavior of steel frames are estimated by taking into account the degradations of elastic modulus, yielding
strength, and thermal force at elevated temperature. The calculated results are then compared with the test results to
demonstrate the accuracy of the proposed method.
