LUCA Description

LUCA is software accompanying a design guide for industrial halls in fire conditions. This tool calculates displacements and additional horizontal forces that appear in industrial halls during fire enabling the engineers to consider their effect in the design in order to avoid collapse or risk of human life. Software was developed within RFCS project RFS2-CR-2007-00032.

This Software is applicable to industrial halls that fulfill the following conditions:

  • Buildings with steel structure, either steel portal frames with cross section in standard H or I hot rolled profiles or equivalent welded plate giders, or steel frames based on lattice beams with columns in H or I;
  • Buildings divided in one or several compartments separated one from another by fire walls. These walls can be either parallel to the steel frames, or perpendicular to the steel frames.

* LUCA download link provides freeware version of the software.
