Reliability of collapse simulation – Comparing finite and applied element method at different levels

Reliability of collapse simulation – Comparing finite and applied element method at different levels

Numerical prediction of progressive collapse of buildings due to extreme loading is still a challenging task. However, increased computational power makes it nowadays possible to analyze not only small-scale connections and mid-size building elements, but also full buildings with considerable height and complexity.

Using the Applied Element Method to simulate the dynamic response of full-scale URM houses tested to collapse or near-collapse conditions

In this work, the Applied Element Method (AEM) is employed to reproduce the dynamic response of three full-scale unreinforced masonry (URM) house specimens tested on a shake-table. Two of the test specimens correspond to a calcium-silicate terraced house typology...
