    Numerical Exploration of Asymmetrical Impact Dynamics: Unveiling Nonlinearities in Collision Problems and Resilience of Reinforced Concrete Structures

    AL-Bukhaiti Khalil1, Yanhui Liu1,*, Shichun Zhao1, Daguang Han2

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.18, No.3, pp. 223-254, 2024, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2024.044751

    Abstract This study provides a comprehensive analysis of collision and impact problems’ numerical solutions, focusing on geometric, contact, and material nonlinearities, all essential in solving large deformation problems during a collision. The initial discussion revolves around the stress and strain of large deformation during a collision, followed by explanations of the fundamental finite element solution method for addressing such issues. The hourglass mode’s control methods, such as single-point reduced integration and contact-collision algorithms are detailed and implemented within the finite element framework. The paper further investigates the dynamic response and failure modes of Reinforced Concrete (RC)… More >

    Extended Limit Analysis of Strain Softening Frames Involving 2nd-Order Geometric Nonlinearity and Limited Ductility

    S. Tangaramvong1, F. Tin-Loi1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.42, No.3, pp. 217-256, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2009.042.217

    Abstract Classical limit analysis is extended to include the effects of 2nd-order geometric and material nonlinearities, as well as the inclusion of limited ductility constraints. For the class of frame structures considered, the material constitutive model adopted can simultaneously accommodate the effects of combined axial and flexural force as well as local softening instability through the use of piecewise linearized yield surfaces. The main feature of the approach developed is to compute, in a single step, an upper bound to the maximum load. Corresponding displacements and stresses can be obtained as a by-product of the analysis. More >
