A numerical method is presented which renders possible realistic structural fire engineering practice; using micro computers is possible. Program structure and its numerical principles were discussed including computer orientated formulation of material properties. Physical and geometrical nonlinearities are taken into account. Accuracy is demonstrated in comparison with full scale ISO-fire test results. Analysis of complex frame behavior is shown with a multi storey frame under local fire. For practical application in structural fire design there are no restrictions in materials and fire characteristics.
