Progressive Collapse Analysis of Structures: Numerical Codes and Modellingprovides a variety of numerical analysis tools and methods which allow engineers to simulate structural collapse behavior during all stages of the process. The analysis of the vulnerability of buildings against progressive collapse is a challenging task. The book covers methods such as adaptively shifted integration and ASI-Gauss. Algorithms are supplied to simulate fracture and contact behaviors. The author also supplies simple numerical examples including case studies from the World Trade Center (WTC) towers in New York City, Nuevo Leon buildings in Mexico and the collapse of the Canterbury Television (CTV) building in New Zealand.

  • Provides algorithms for simulating fracture and contact behaviors of structural members
  • Covers fire-induced progressive collapse analyses for high-rise towers
  • Provides codes for simulating seismic pounding phenomena, blast demolition and fire-induced progressive collapse
