Car Shade Collapse Analysis

KSA

Problem

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.

Analysis

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.

Conclusion

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.
