Drop load

Free fall of a container on reinforced concrete structure

Definition of the critical free fall scenario. Modelling of the dropping loads and the target : steel container, shock absorber made of organic material, reinforced concrete structure covered by a steel cap or a radio protection slab. Presence of steel items on the free fall path able to absorb some of the fall energy.

Risk assessment of the failure of containers

Case of a collapsing slab during earthquake

Definition of the failure scenario of the roof made of precast slab elements and post tensionned beams. Modelling of the dropping items and of the container. Dynamic analysis of the impact between these items and the steel container and assessment of the damage.
