Glazing systems are widely used in office buildings around the world. They provide an open space feeling for the building occupants, and this makes them an attractive option. Unfortunately, they have a weakness, they are vulnerable to blast pressure induced from...
Separation Strain for Progressive Collapse Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Building Using Applied Element Method
he basic theory of the applied element method is described in this article, and some modeling techniques for applying this analysis method to the simulation of the progressive collapse of reinforced concrete tall buildings are suggested. Separation strain, which is considered to have potential for use in realistic representation of the collapse of structures, was […]
