Visit the SAFIR youtube channel for tutorial videos on how to create SAFIR models using the pre-processor GmSAFIR.
The PDF document below describes step-by-step how to build a model in GmSAFIR for the 2D thermal analysis of a protected steel cross-section.
Other worked examples of SAFIR models, created using the pre-processor GiD, are provided here below.
