    Abstract

    In this paper we present results of numerical analysis of timber beam exposed to fire. The numerical procedure is divided into two physically separated but closely related phases. In the first phase coupled problem of moisture and heat transfer over the timber beam is numerically solved using the enhanced finite element method. The results of the first computational stage were used as the input data for the numerical analysis of mechanical response of timber element.
