Progressive Collapse

Progressive collapse (aka: Disproportionate Collapse) occurs when a local failure spreads throughout a structure from element to element, eventually resulting in the collapse of either the entire structure or a disproportionately large part of it. Progressive collapse is caused by an abnormal or extreme loading event, typically due to accidental impact, faulty construction, foundational failure, or violent changes in air pressure (ie: Blast).

Applied Science International, LLC is dedicated to “Changing the Known Built World” by bringing an advanced level of scientific inquiry to the examination, analysis, and study of structures for a safer world.

ASI relies on the experience of highly qualified engineers, scientists, and software developers to provide its clients with advanced structural analysis and simulation consultation services. ASI can perform both linear and non-linear analysis of structures undergoing either natural or man-made extreme loading events. ASI’s clients are able to see and experience the results of their decisions quickly and efficiently during the process of designing new structures or rehabilitating existing ones. 

Structural Engineering Services:

 

Architects, engineers, general contractors, and framing contractors obtain greater insight into their projects with steel framing design services. ASI employs the industry’s most knowledgeable, trusted team of CFS design experts to support Shop Drawing, ATFP Design for Blast & Progressive Collapse, and BIM projects.

 

Cold Formed Steel Design Services:

  • Engineered Shop Drawings
  • Structural Calculation Package
  • BIM Modelling
  • Material Take-Offs
  • Plan Layouts
  • Panel Drawings
  • Performance Based Design
  • Progressive Collapse Analysis
  • Blast Analysis

As construction methods and materials have grown increasingly complex over the years, so has the need for new and more accurate methods to plan, analyze, and demolish such structures.  Utilizing its Extreme Loading® Technology (ELT), ASI is able simulate in full 3D sequential (mechanical, wrecking ball, excavator) and induced collapse demolition plans which employ the use of explosives, wrecking ball, high reach excavator, pushing or pulling force, or manual deconstruction.

Using its Extreme Loading Technology or ELT, ASI can analyze failure scenarios more accurately, in a shorter amount of time, and with more detail than conventional structural analysis methods. In addition, results from ELT structural analysis can effectively display and communicate technical events through 3D video of the scenario to both technical and non-technical audiences as an expert witness.

Extreme Loading® for Structures Software or ELS, is an advanced non-linear dynamic structural analysis software tool designed with the practicing structural engineer in mind. ELS allows structural engineers to study the 3D behavior of structures through both the continuum and discrete stages of loading. This includes static and dynamic loads such as those generated by blast, seismic events, impact, progressive collapse, and wind.

ASI’s SteelSmart® System Software or SSS, was developed by ASI exclusively for The Steel Network, Inc to provide cold-formed steel construction professionals with powerful tools to aid in the design, estimation, and construction of cold-formed steel structures.
