Abstract

Structural and nonstructural members are always encountered with extreme loading conditions. In case of nonstructural members, the failure happens much sooner due to lack of load capacity. The nonstructural elements are not designed for structural loading conditions. However, they might be impacted to other loading types such as fire. In recent years, the use of 3D panel is one of the most common partitions in the world. In this research, the effect of fire on 3D panel partitions is presented. To achieve this goal, ABAQUS finite element software is employed to simulate the 3D panel. The 3D panel is embedded inside steel frame. In order to have an accurate result, two validations are performed including steel frame and the steel frame with 3D panel. In the study, 5 different fire loadings 200, 400, 600, 800 and 1000°C are applied into the model. Results include load-displacement diagram and stiffness and ductility factors. The results indicated that as fire load increases, the stiffness and ductility factor are reduced.
