ASI was approached by an industrial car shade manufacturer to perform a forensic engineering analysis on their car shade. We ended up doing a full collapse analysis in order to fully test the product design.
Under high wind conditions, a newly designed car shade structural failed catastrophically. The manufacturer of the car shade, who had installed the product at several other locations requested ASI expertise in the forensic investigation of the incident and subsequent design optimization car shade.
ASI used created a three-dimensional model for the car-shed taking all construction details and material properties into consideration. ASI engineers performed nonlinear dynamic analysis of the structure under the effects of the wind loading.
Based on the 3D analysis, ASI showed the sequence of failure for the specified wind load case. ASI engineers provided recommendations to improve the design and prevent future failure.
