Visit ASI Engineers as they present on the proposal of a new methodology to design against disproportionate collapse for critical buildings that must be operational after a terrorist attack. The disproportionate collapse analysis uses the alternate path method where...read more
Visit ASI Engineers as they present on Alternative Load Path Analysis (ALPA), which is becoming the most common technique for performance based design of structures to resist disproportionate collapse. This has coincided with an increased ability of high fidelity...read more
Model Progressive Collapse In Ten Minutes or Less:
In this short video, we take you through the process of creating a small reinforced concrete structure to illustrate how quickly you can model and analyze a detailed reinforced concrete structure for progressive collapse in Extreme Loading® for Structures Software (ELS).
The Applied Element Method (AEM) based solver in Extreme Loading® for Structures is a derivative of the Finite Element Method (FEM) and the Discrete Element Method (DEM). AEM is capable of performing both linear and nonlinear, static or dynamic analysis that follows the behavior of structures through separation, collision, and collapse.
Applications of Extreme Loading for Structures
Never before, have structural engineers had a structural analysis software tool that is capable of fully analyzing structures under extreme loads.
This paper was presented at the 16th World Conference on Earthquake Engineering (16WCEE) in Santiago, Chile, January 9th-13th, 2017. The paper is a result of research into the use of Extreme Loading for Structures in seismic assessment and retrofitting historic...
