The Evaluation of Compressive Behavior of Column Exposure to Fire using Abaqus
Keywords:reinforced concrete columns, abaqus, design fire, preprocessing ,post processing, normal strength column (NSC), high strength column (HSC)
In this paper, an attempt to validate the results of an experimental study with an analytical model undertaken to understand the percentage loss in compressive strength of reinforced concrete column (RCC) before and after exposure of fire as per ASTM E 119 between experimental work and software (ABAQUS). The results of experimental work is taken from the standard journal having specified column dimensions, material properties and loss in compressive strength before and after exposure of fire. Using software, the above column is modelled, analyzed and compared results of NSC and HSC with experimental work.
