Abstract: Since the September 11th terrorist attacks, the research and engineering communities have given significant attention to building performance under combined effects of impact, explosion, and fire. This paper presents a numerical approach for inelastic transient analysis of steel frame structures subjected to explosion loading followed by fire. The approach adopts the use of beam-column element and fiber element to enable a realistic modeling of the overall framework subjected to localized explosion and fire. Detailed requirements for modeling elasto-plastic materials subjected to elevated temperature and high-strain rates are presented. Verification examples are provided. The influence of blast loads on the fire resistance of a multistory steel frame is studied.
