Title: Workshop On Collapse Performance of Steel Buildings and Guidelines for Progressive Collapse Modeling and Analysis
Biography: Halil Sezen
• Experimental data from field testing of steel frame buildings will be presented. One to four first-story columns were physically removed from existing buildigns using different methods. Strains and displacements were measured at several critical locations during the removal of columns.
• Computational models and analysis procedures will be presented to simulate collapse response of steel buildings. Static and dynamic analysis of two and three-dimensional structural models will be described. Redistribution of internal forces within the building after the loss of columns will be shown.
• Current progressive collapse design methodologies prescribed in the current code standards and guidelines will be presented.
