The purpose of this study is progressive collapse behavior in buildings. It occurs due to removal/damage of a column by fire, blast or vehicle impact.
The present study investigates the comparative behavior of 3D four-storey moment resisting steel frame using ABAQUS to predict the sensitivity of the structure in progressive collapse because of fire loads. Columns at different levels were given different temperature with reduced material properties and yield strength. Progressive collapse load combination was adopted as per General Service Administration guidelines. Corner, middle, intermediate, multiple corner and multiple intermediate columns were subjected to fire load separately.
The results for displacement, stress, shear force and axial force were captured and discussed.
The study covers linear analysis of steel frame because of different temperature. In linear analysis. columns were subjected to different temperature and their results were studied. Effect of temperature in the structure were captured because of different fire conditions.
