Numerical Simulation of Building Strength when Foundation Subsides Unevenly


Article Preview

A building structure is analyzed using finite element method. The stresses and strains of the structure are calculated numerically, when the foundation subsides unevenly. Thus, the effect of the sedimentation is evaluated. The results can be referenced in the evaluation of building structures.
