ABAQUS Video Tutorial; Modeling Masonry Walls (simplified micro model) using ABAQUS


This Video Tutorial is not produced  based on a laboratory sample but the step-by-step teaching method describes the simplified micro model that many researchers use today to simulate the behavior of masonry walls. After this course, you will be able to simulate any type of masonry wall using this method and extract the contour of stresses, strains and wall/block cracks. Tutorial Video, CAE and JNL and CDP creator Excel files are provided to you by purchasing the product. You can edit and run Model using Abaqus 6.14.1 or later versions. for more detail please read the below description.

Masonry Walls (simplified micro model) using ABAQUS

“Structural Numerical Research Center” provides numerous numerical models to assist scientists and researchers all over the world. For last 13 years, we have always aimed to improve engineering knowledge and develop the findings. Masonry buildings are the most existing buildings in the world, so researchers are always developing their construction and retrofitting methods. It’s one of the most accurate methods for predicting the behavior of these buildings is their numerical modeling and finite element analysis, which fortunately is possible today using software such as Abaqus.

Numerical modeling of masonry wall generally divide into two categories: micro and macro modeling. Masonry wall is a composite member which its behavior composed of three components; brick, mortar and brick-mortar interactions. In modeling by micro method, all components must produce with full modeling details, for this reason, this method has a lot of calculation and modeling cost for the user. In macro modeling, despite the aforementioned problems, the response of the structure is relatively accurate and the user will have doubts in analyzing the results.

Where the overall response of a masonry building is considered to predict, the macro method is suitable to use. But don’t worry, the simplified micro model can replace the micro method. If you are interested in learning this method, this tutorial is a perfect choice.

This Video Tutorial (simplified micro model for Modeling Masonry Walls) is not based on a laboratory sample. But the step-by-step tutorial has been used to describe the CDP Criterion for simulating the behavior of masonry members. After this course (simplified micro model for Modeling Masonry Walls using ABAQUS), you will be able to simulate any type of such problem and extract cracks, forces and displacements. You can watch a summary of our Abaqus video tutorial below. Thank you in advance for subscribing to our YouTube channel. You can also find more products about masonry problems at the link. Keep in mind that to increase your modeling knowledge in Abaqus software, the best reference is the software help, along with the tutorials on our website.
