Abstract: Nowadays, TCC floors are successfully used in: new buildings, refurbishment of existing buildings, bridges etc. In their most common application they have to provide REI30 and REI60 performance. Although experimental testing is the best way, numerical modelling is a cheaper alternative to provide reliable information regarding the fire resistance and performance of a TCC system.
This paper presents a novel numerical model for analysis of timber-concrete composite slab with screwed connections in fire. Validation of this numerical model, conducted with the computer program SAFIR, is made by comparison of the results with one experimentally tested timber-concrete composite slab exposed to fire. The results achieved by the numerical model are in very good agreement with the experimental results.
