[en] A thorough analysis has been performed to evaluate SAFIR release 1.3 through a set of examples presented by Wyckström in the paper "An evaluation scheme of computer codes for calculating temperature in fire exposed structures - two dimensional analysis". The results of SAFIR 1.3 have been compared with the results obtained by TASEF, or to analytical solution when available. The results of SAFIR 1.3 compare well with the analytical solutions and, with few exceptions, with those of TASEF.
