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, plus travel and accomodation, excluding VAT).
