Progressive Collapse Analysis of Multistory Frames
The “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. Progressive collapse is defined as the failure of a primary element of a structure, which may result in the failure of adjoining elements, consequently, leads to a partial or total collapse of the structure (GSA, 2003b). The study of progressive collapse and structural robustness has advanced significantly after 9/11 event. So, this analysis is very effective in identifying the weak points of the structure and can lead to the provision of resistance solutions against explosion and fire.
This tutorial video (Progressive Collapse Analysis of Multistory Frames using Abaqus) is not based on a laboratory sample. At the end of course you will be familiar with the basic concepts of progressive collapse, modeling the geometry, defining non-linear behavior of materials, choosing analysis type and mesh generation. Finally, you will see how the entire structure collapses in a fraction of time due to the lack of just one member. After evaluating this product, you will be able to simulate any type of such phenomena. Below is a summary of this tutorial and thank you in advance for subscribing to our YouTube channel. You can also find more products about video tutorial 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.
