Ohashi, H. and Kodaira, A., 1997. Calculation Of Load And Deformation Behavior Of Structure Elements Taking Into Account 3-dimensional Heat Flow. Fire Safety Science 5: 1021-1032. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.5-1021
This paper describes a numerical method for the calculation of load and deformation behavior of structural elements taking into account 3-Dimensional heat flow. The 3Dimensional heat flow influences the temperature distribution in the area of beam-to-column, beam-to-slab and slab-to-column connections. Because of this, the temperature distribution in the longitudinal direction is different between 2-D and 3-D calculations. However, the difference in structural behavior is small, when comparing calculation results from 2-D and 3-D analysis with test results of single elements under standard fire conditions.
