Description

The progressive collapse of a structure is characterised by a disproportion between a comparatively minor event or local failure and the ensuing widespread collapse. Different structural systems exhibit different degrees of susceptibility to progressive collapse and such differences are neglected in modern design procedures based on reliability theory.

Disregarding the potential for progressive collapse in structural design can be associated with such catastrophic events as the collapses of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building (Oklahoma City, 1995) and the World Trade Center (New York, 2001), but also with a large number of less dramatic failures.

This book gives engineers the practical, systematic framework they need to anticipate the risk of progressive collapse and apply this knowledge to design and assessment procedures. This will be an invaluable guide for structural engineers at all levels as well as many students and lecturers on civil and structural engineering courses.
