RE: Progressive collapse

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

As far as I am aware there is no commercial software at present for progressive collapse, just research. Also progressive collapse is more a qualitative issue than quantitative.

 

Any frame analysis software with a programmable interface would be helpful for the analysis. Without the programmable interface simply copy the model, delete the members and change the loads. With a programmable interface automatically delete members and change loads using the one model, and search for the critical condition.
