ArraynHow does the paper define withstand fire?nIf the I-beam is under an axial or bending load, and the material model includes temperature dependent modulus and plasticity data, it is possible to predict in ANSYS how many minutes before the beam fails to support the load from a transient structural simulation where the temperature is increasing with time. If the material model includes a creep model, it is possible for ANSYS to compute the time to failure to support the load from a steady state thermal solution.nOr do you mean how long before the material melts? Ansys can do that too!n
