The structure is then discretized by means of truss, beam or shell finite elements and the evolution of the structure’s displacements, stresses and strains are calculated. For the mechanical analyses based on 3D beam finite elements, the software can calculate the elastic torsional stiffness of the section.
SAFIR has been developed from the beginning as a tool for modeling the behavior of structures subjected to the fire. The link between the thermal analysis and the structural analysis is thus quite straightforward. It is founded on high performance finite elements, yet it runs on quite ordinary Windows based PC. Its utilization is not complex, provided that the user has a good knowledge of non linear modeling. Training sessions can be organised at a reasonable prize (800 euros per day, excluding VAT).

You can buy SAFIR using a credit card (« Paypal » option, works with a simple credit card. You get it within a few minutes), or by bank transfer (you get it within a few days after payment).
If you need a pro forma invoice for your accountancy to make the bank transfer, please go through the order checkout, choose as payment option "bank transfer" and validate. You will get an email with an order summary containing all your billing information and the payment informations (IBAN, SWIFT, Bank name and address, account holder) and which can be used as pro forma invoice.
You will get the final invoice, together with the access to download SAFIR, when the payment is validated.
Once the payment is validated, you get an notification email. As soon as you get this email, you can connect to your account on Gesval (https://www.gesval.be/en/inscription/edit), click on the « licenses » tab, and find the links to download : (1) SAFIR, and (2) your personal « identity.key » file (see screenshot below).
