Progressive Collapse and blasting loads

Post by engamrramadan » 24 Oct 2016, 09:07

Dear SEISMOSOFT Team
can i model a progressive collapse of reinforced concrete structures " Remove a columns in nonlinear dynamic behavior " using Seismostruc?
Also,
can i model a blasting load time history using Seismostruc?
thank you

Yes you can model a progressive collapse by using the element deactivate feature in non-linear time-history analysis.
Similarly, you can model a blast loading in non-linear time-history analysis, by applying a time-dependent load for a small amout of time at the beginning.
