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.
Calculation of Steel, Partially Encased, Composite, or Integrated Beams
ABC: ArcelorMittal Beams Calculator is a free pre-design tool for use in designing a variety of steel and composite structures such as portal frames, beam and column structures, trusses, and column-beam connections.
Lateral Torsional Buckling of Beams
ArcelorMittal Construction Phase ACP for composite solutions to check the LTB behaviour of composite and/or partially encased beams during erection.
ArcelorMittal Composite Slim-Floor Beams
CoSFB (Composite slim floor beams), a new development by ArcelorMittal, combines the advantages of composite design with traditional slim floor construction and is the perfect answer to the demands of long spans in modern architecture.
Innovation in Earthquake Resistant Design
Verification of INERD constructive system in steel that can be applied to reinforce concrete frame structure.
Predesign of Steel or Composite Cellular Beams with Circular Openings
Predesign of steel or composite cellular beams with circular openings in cold and fire conditions.
