OUTLINE
• Methods
• Results
• Discussion of Results
• Conclusion
• Summary
METHODS
• Import model from ABAQUS
• Strip model down to geometry
• Split model into 15 parts
• Analyze model
• Missing shell elements
• Dimensions match from notes
• Thickness of each part
• Match Lehigh experimental results
• Begin matching ABAQUS results
DISCUSSION OF RESULTS
• Mass
• In calculations: 5070 pounds
• From model: 4520 pounds
• Should go up in modified model
• Current model matches
• Lehigh (296 kips vs 295 kips)
• Equation 9 ()
• Expected characteristics
• Stress concentrated in top and bottom rails
CONCLUSION
• Current model produces good results
• Modifications are slight
• Should not change current results
• New model is almost ready for testing
SUMMARY
• ABAQUS model imported and stripped
• Current model produces good results
• Currently modifying model
• Next up
• Reproduce current results
• Static analysis
• Hit a column
• Various orientations
• Varying flexibility
