Structural Fire Resistance Analysis

Structural fire-resistance analysis ensures buildings and other structures are designed and constructed
to withstand the effects of fires. The analysis performed by the modeling specialists at TERPconsulting
involves the evaluation of a structure’s ability to maintain its structural integrity under exposure to fire
conditions, including heat, flame, and smoke.
TERPconsulting’s process of structural fire-resistance analysis begins with a detailed examination of the
building or structure’s design and construction, including the materials used in its construction, the
layout of its components, and its fire protection systems. Next, TERPconsulting’s modeling team uses
computer software modeling programs to simulate the potential effects of fire on the structure,
considering factors such as fire load, ventilation, and the time it takes for the fire to spread.
The results of the analysis performed by TERPconsulting’s modeling experts are then used to inform the
development of strategies to enhance the structure’s fire resistance, such as adding additional fire
protection systems, increasing the structural strength of the building’s components, or modifying the
building’s design to improve its ability to withstand fire conditions.
TERPconsulting’s structural fire-resistance analysis is an essential tool for ensuring that efficient fire
protection systems have been put in place and structures are designed and constructed to withstand the
potential effects of fires, reduce the risk of injury or loss of life, and minimize damage to property.
