Abstract

In recent years, unfavourable actions such as excessive deflection, uneven settling of the soil beneath foundations, structural loads, deterioration of materials, poor maintenance, landslides, deficiency in the initial builder's structural knowledge, flood, earthquake and explosive blast have led to the collapse of structures and loss of human life. It has often been reported that these events do not kill people but rather the affected structures do. Hence, the collapse of engineering structures is a contemporary and critical topic all over the world. However, to simulate these phenomena, a great number of input data and failure criterion definitions are required which have an elaborated form owing to the interaction between several elements of engineering structure. Also, the computational cost is relatively high and time-consuming. Hence the justification for an alternative simplified method using Blender software and Bullet Constraints Builder (BCB). Blender software and BCB add-on work in harmony to simulate collapse scenarios. Blender and BCB averaged a large number of structural features in simplified engineering formulas. Consequently, the time it takes to develop an executable simulation model is much reduced with approximately the same accuracy and debris formation. The debris formulation of the simplified method could be used to trace victims in the event of a collapse in reality. This study aims to review the alternative simplified method that could be used for visualizing collapse. The review is supported by masonry structure as a case study.
