Abstract

The research was based on data obtained from experimental studies and aims in the challenge of mapping these results by a mathematical (phenomenological) model. The field experiments were performed on an H-section steel column supported by a reinforced concrete foundation and subjected to a close-in explosion. Numerical studies were carried out using Abaqus/Explicit code. The user subroutine VUMAT for metallic obstacle was also implemented, together with a coupled Eulerian–Lagrangian approach. The steel column failure recorded during real field tests versus computational results was examined and compared. It was crucial that, from the computational point of view, the obstacle reflected the generalized thermo-elasto-viscoplastic (GTEV) behavior of Perzyna’s type, including an anisotropic measure of damage.
