Effects of Close Range Blasts on Steel Frames. Experimental Testing and Numerical Validation
uring last decades, there was an increased interest from research and design professionals to provide effective strategies in protecting buildings and other assets from the direct effects of blasts or other incidents. Experimental tests, conducted over a large range of distances and charge weights, helped at developing analytical approaches and charts which can be used […]
Collapse Prevention Design Criteria for Moment Connections in Multi-Story Steel Frames Under Extreme Actions
he paper investigates the role of beam-to-column connections in mitigation the progressive collapse of multi-story steel frame buildings in case of column loss. On this purpose, a set of moment frames with different beam-to-column connections is designed following seismic design criteria for highly dissipative structures to resist seismic actions. Applied Element Method through nonlinear dynamic […]
