Can the collapse of house models be reproduced in scaled hydraulic experiments? What collapse patterns can be inferred as a result? In our new publication in the journal Coastal Engineering on "Collapse processes and associated loading of square light-frame timber structures due to bore-type waves", we present a new methodology for modeling structures that was developed in collaboration with colleagues at IBHolz , the FZK, and INRS in Canada. The publication has been developed in the framework of the CollStruct project and holds new insights into physical modeling and collapse of buildings in the interface between coastal engineering, structural engineering and timber construction.
The paper was published online 07/21/2022 in Coastal Engineering. Videos showing the collapse of the model structures are available in a data repository of the TU Braunschweig via the following DOI: https://doi.org/10.24355/dbbs.084-202202110737-0
