large bending of a beam

submitted by: tingvfife

Calculated by VFIFE(V-5), vector form intrinsic finite element. V-5 is developed by Center for Bridge Engineering Research, National Central University, Taiwan. The element is a 3D frame element.

computer simulation of the demolition of a structure

submitted by: tingvfife

This is created by VFIFE (V-5), a new finite element technique capable of calculation motion and stresses of a structural system. It is developed by Center for Bridge Engineering Research, National Central University, Taiwan

computer simulation of structural collapse

submitted by: tingvfife

This is created by VFIFE (V-5, vector form intrinsic finite element) developed recently at National Central University, Taiwan. V-5 is capable of calculating position changes and body deformation simultaneously. It is based on the mechanics concept of Motion Analysis.
