Finite element analysis of RC elements in progressive collapse scenario

Nima Usefi, Foad Mohajeri Nav, Reza Abbasnia

Abstract

The applicability of the finite element method in the analysis of progressive collapse of reinforced concrete structures is evaluated using twenty RC sub-assemblage at five different scales. Qualitative comparison of results shows a good agreement between experimental results and results obtained by the finite-element method. In addition, a small error in numerical comparison of results shows the capability of the finite element model to estimate and predict behaviour of reinforced concrete elements at different scales under the progressive collapse scenario.
