Dear all,


As I know, STEEL TAKEOFF gives the total weight of steel members that are used in a model in STAAD.Pro...similarly is there any command for getting FIREPROOFING WEIGHT directly in output file...?


Please let me know if someone know this...


Thanks and Regards,
Chandu

Dear Mr. Chandu,
This load is not to be mistaken for load [ as force] since it is not because of gravitational acceleration.
This is a terminology used identify the fire resistance that needs to be considered. Concrete element dimensions and cover to reinforcement is a function of fire resistance defined in hours[ as in IS 456]. To give escape materials used  in the construction. In RCC cover to reinforcement  is provided so that temperature of steel in case of fire should not reach high so that modulus of elasticity is not dropped down suddenly endangering structure.
This fire load to be resisted is defined in lbs/sft or kg/sqm. For example, residential buildings are designed for fire load of 8.5 lbs/sft. or 42 kg/sqm. while office building may be designed for fire load about 2 to 3 times higher.
