[en] Membrane action in fire is now an intensively researched area, for which more improvement is always necessary. The paper presents some numerical simulations, done with the SAFIR program, in order to derive more simple models for representing the partially protected composite floors in fire situation. The numerical models are calibrated using the results of three full scale tests that have been performed in recent years.
