The OpenSees development for modelling 'structures in fire' was first started at University of Edinburgh in 2009. A number of students and researchers worked on this long-term project with their own contributions which enable OpenSees to perform analyses for 'structure in fire' including heat transfer ,thermo-mechanical analyses, and integrated analyses.

A number of web pages are constructed to offer the users a detailed guidance to the recently added capabilities within OpenSees
A detailed description of all the new or modified classes developed for enabling thermomehcanical analyses in OpenSees.
