Reliability of collapse simulation – Comparing finite and applied element method at different levels

Reliability of collapse simulation – Comparing finite and applied element method at different levels

Numerical prediction of progressive collapse of buildings due to extreme loading is still a challenging task. However, increased computational power makes it nowadays possible to analyze not only small-scale connections and mid-size building elements, but also full buildings with considerable height and complexity.

Research and Practice on Progressive Collapse and Robustness of Building Structures in the 21st Century

Extreme events (i.e. terrorist attacks, vehicle impacts, explosions, etc.) often cause local damage to building structures and pose a serious threat when one or more vertical load-bearing components fail, leading to the progressive collapse of the entire structure or...
