Every day, old structures are demolished to make room for new and improved buildings, bridges, and other structures. More often than we would like, during the course of these demolitions, things do not go as planned and loss or damage to property can occur. The...
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 […]
