Concrete Piers and Steel Pipe Rack Seismic Analysis, the Netherlands
Witteveen+Bos performed a seismic analysis on an existing concrete foundation with piers, located in the Netherlands. The connected steel pipe rack and piping system were included in the analysis.Utilizing a multimodal response spectrum analysis in RFEM, Witteveen+Bos specified a unique response spectra to analyze the structural response induced by this seismic activity.

The material model Orthotropic Masonry 2D is an elastoplastic model that additionally allows softening of the material, which can be different in the local x- and y-direction of a surface. The material model is suitable for (unreinforced) masonry walls with in-plane loads.
