Abstract:

This project report discusses the development of a complete procedure for a finite element analysis of the failure of selected shipboard barriers under hostile fire exposures. The work consisted of the analysis of three different barrier materials. It included the determination of temperature dependent thermal properties of the materials followed by the development of a finite element analysis protocol. The protocol was illustrated using the computer codes ANSYS and NASTRAN for the structural analysis and TASEF-2 and FlRES-T3 for the thermal analysis.
